When Domus approached Carlo Ratti to write an op-ed on the theme of opensource architecture he responded with an unusual suggestion: why not write it collaboratively, as an open-source document? Within a few hours a page was started on Wikipedia, and an invitation sent to an initial network of contributors. The outcome of this collaborative effort is presented in the article. The Domus article is a capture of the text as of 11 May 2011, but the Wikipedia page remains online as an open canvas — a 21st -century manifesto of sorts, which by definition is in permanent evolution.
