“Wikihouse is one answer to a very big question,” said Alastair Parvin during his 2013 TED Talk.

The question was centred around how best to house the world’s growing and urbanising population.

According to Parvin, one of the founders of the Wikihouse project, the world’s fastest growing cities are not skyscraper cities, they’re self-built cities such as Rio’s favelas.

The Wikihouse project is an open source, collaborative venture that aims to help people to build their own homes. Making use of open source software and designs, Wikihouses are designed to be built by people anywhere who don’t possess high-level building skills.
