It began in 2011, as an experiment for the Gwangju Design Biennale in Korea. Designers Alastair Parvin and Nick Ierodiaconou started exploring practical applications of their philosophical commitment to a more democratized design movement. Parvin explains, "For too long, cities have been made by the 1% and consumed by the 99%. We wanted to see what it would take to create something that would allow the 99% to make cities for the 99%." With this in mind, they created a blueprint that would allow everyday people to build their own homes using open sourced designs and locally sourced materials. They posted their designs and assembly directions online and encouraged anyone to try it out, iterate on it, and upload their own ideas. Since they first initiated the project, five prototypes have been assembled.
