About the project
Buildings account for around 40% of all carbon emissions, 60% of materials consumed and 32% of all waste. In other words, if we’re serious about preventing climate collapse, we need to reinvent the way we build, fast. That’s why we developed WikiHouse, an open source manufactured building system for homes.
But in doing so, we realised that we don’t just need to reinvent the way we build. We also need to reinvent the way we design and procure buildings. We believe that the most powerful technology to do that is already here: the world wide web.
So we’ve been experimenting with Build✕, a web-based design platform. Imagine being able to go online, choose from standard design solutions, adapt and customise them. As you do so, the model is instantaneously fetching and calculating the cost and carbon footprint and the likely energy usage of that building. The production information can then go directly to a manufacturer.
That’s what we’re working on, and if you’re a Three.js developer, we need your help.
