For those unfamiliar with Open Building, please visit this link which will give you a background to the concept:

Open Building and Appropriate Technology have many overlaps in terms of the following:

* Democratising the building process – involving many in the design and implementation process
* Building as a social process and how the built environment is based on social structures and relationships
* The development of small construction enterprises and skills transfer in the construction process
* Open Building as a tool to manage complexity in Built Environment Ecosystems
