Title: Open Architecture Network
Url: http://openarchitecturenetwork.org/
Publisher: Architecture for Humanity (Organization)
Description: The Open Architecture Network site starts things off with a bold and passionate statement: "Le Corbusier had it all wrong". It's definitely a good way to get visitors" attention upon entering the site. The Network is an online, open source community which seeks to improve living conditions through innovative and sustainable design. On the site, visitors can share their design ideas and plans, review and comment on posted designs, and also collaborate with each other. Visitors will no doubt get exited about the "Projects" section, which is both intellectually stimulating and well-designed. Visitors can search the projects by status, region, location, or theme, or they can also perform a keyword search as well. There are some wonderful finds here, including a childcare school in Sri Lanka, a day laborer shelter, and a "Doc-in-a-Box", which is meant to serve as a mobile health care center.
