When comparing building software and building houses: the designing of the house, is like the creating of the code. The difference between building software and houses, is that the actual building of software, is the compiling. You can redesign software and recompile: cheap changes. Now, we can do the same with houses.
This presentation about open sources houses, puts architecture back where it belongs, for all the people and not 1% of the world. Lots of crazy idea’s, yet as Steve Jobs used to say, the world is not going to change by doing what everyone else does.
Update: This video about printing a house in 20 hours is also incredible.
