Architecture for the masses?

Liz Stinson, writing for Wired:

[Joana] Pacheco, who heads up architecture firm UMA, just launched the Paperhouses, a platform that’s looking to bring high-quality open source architecture to the masses. For its initial launch, Pacheco rounded up 12 well-known architects from around the world to contribute a house blueprint that the public can access for free.

Knowing that someone else could have your exact house takes some of the shine off having an architect to design your house, but at least they probably won’t be your neighbor.
