In this paper, we argue that new technologies and
strategies for design can enable a more responsive model for creating
places of living. We describe work by the House_n Research group at MIT
to develop a conceptual framework for Open Source Building, and to
prototype and test both alternative construction methodologies and new
design tools that support it. We believe that this approach could
transform how homes are created over the next 10-15 years, and create
new pathways into this $322 billion per year market for companies
producing materials, products, and services for the home.
