Studio Wikitecture takes award at AMD Open Architecture Challenge

Studio Wikitecture's entry for a tele-medicine facility in Western Nepal has won the Founder's Award in the AMD Open Architecture Challenge, a competition hosted by Architecture for Humanity on the Open Architecture Network.

Edging out 565 other entries from 57 countries, Studio Wikitecture apparently owes its success to a 3D-Wiki 'plug-in' that allowed designs to be developed, trialed and evaluated by consensus in the virtual environment of Second Life.

The award was granted for "embracing a truly collaborative way of working using online crowdsourcing and Second Life as a way to create a highly participatory design approach" celebrating Studio Wikitecture's open and distributed approach to architectural design.
