Alastair Parvin

Alastair Parvin is a designer working with innovative design and strategy firm 00:/ ('zero zero') in London. They are cofounders of WikiHouse, an open source construction set, whose aim is to use digital manufacturing to make it possible for anyone to cheaply design, download, 'print' and assemble structures without the need for conventional construction skills and tools. The project is now being developed by a small community around the world, including a project in the favelas of Rio, which was awarded a TED City 2.0 prize in 2012. The WikiHouse project pursues the idea of a 21st century urban development model, where citizen and user-led production can shape sustainable cities.
