The approach we are taking to this project is modeled after the systems and philosophies of open source software. We think that this will be the most effective way to find unique solutions to existing problems.
Also: some helpful notes from John Maeda:
John Maeda - Laws of simplicity What does one need or use? What can we as house designers do to help? What should/could be done? Why?
Law 1: Reduce The simplest way to achieve simplicity is through thoughtful reduction. Law 2: Organise Organsiation makes a system of many appear fewer Law 4: Learn Knowledge makes everything simpler Law 6: Context What lies in the periphery of simplicity is definitely not peripheral. Law 9: Failure Some things can never be made simple. --John Maeda
