OpenBuildings is a new community-driven website that lists architecture from across the globe; be it historic, contemporary or conceptual, enabling a more open way to share architectural knowledge.OpenBuildings was founded by architects and architecture fanatics who became increasingly frustrated by the lack of online resources for learning about architecture and buildings. Until now this has been a protracted and fragmented experience, with no single website offering a serious informational resource. OpenBuildings solves this problem: an openly editable encyclopedia of buildings from around the world.
Free or open source software
As an architect I often see firms spending a huge amount of ¥€$ on software. This is particularly difficult for small businesses and newer firms who must base the very establishment of their company on the availability of software licenses. In an attempt to see if this situation could be eased or changed, I started looking for alternatives to the expensive software solutions normally used in the industry.
The search for these alternatives is what this page is all about. I am not trying to move standards or reinvent practice. Rather, I am simply exploring alternative solutions and will post these along with any other fun stuff that I stumble upon on my way. I don't write fancy reviews or elaborated evaluations. I just communicate what I find.
