Strategic Designer at 00 London
Alastair Parvin is a strategic designer with 00 London, and the co-founder of WikiHouse Foundation. He is currently working on better housing systems, open production & citizen-led development. Although he trained in architecture, his work extends outside its traditional framework, looking at the economic, social, political and technological forces behind it. He is a co-inventor of WikiHouse, a digital building system which is using open design and distributed digital manufacturing to radically democratise the production of homes.
He also thinks, writes, speaks and advises companies, organisations and governments on housing crises, sustainable development, democratic cities and housing policy for the 21st century as well as on how open design and technology can be engaged to address some of the most critical social, environmental and economic challenges we face as a society.
