Architecture for Humanity has launched the beta version of the Open Architecture Network at www.openarchitecturenetwork.org, a stand-alone site that will allow designers, community groups, NGOs and others to post projects, browse others, comment and review projects, discuss relevant topics, contribute to shared resources, collaborate with each other and access project management tools to support their work.
This is a very early beta version of the site and much more functionality will be added and refined over the next year. However, the site will only be a good as the community makes it. As a group, users represent the largest humanitarian and environmental design collective in the world. So please log on and get your hands dirty start to seed the network with all your amazing projects.
If each of you forwards this invitation to 15 friends, over half a million people would find out about the Open Architecture Network. For those that care about building a better world, log on, register, and help make a difference.
The Open Architecture Network is currently inviting any groups interested in submitting more than five projects this year to become one of the networks founding content partners. These partners will be listed on the sponsors page and will be highlighted on stage at the launch. Currently, the OAN has two dozen content partners from around the world and if you are interested in adding your name to the list, please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
