WikiHouse 10 Design Principles

  1. Be lazy like a fox

  2. Design for materials and components which are reasonably cheap to buy, low-carbon and fully recyclable or biodegradable.

  3. Design is disruptive when it lowers the threshold

  4. WikiHouses should be capable of being habitable throughout the year, and as efficient as possible in the use of energy and water

  5. Design in such a way as to offer maximum provision for the safety, security and health (both mental and physical) of the users at all stages of the structure's life.

  6. Share your work as much and as openly as possible, it might come back better

  7. "It is easier to ship recipes than cakes and biscuits" - John Maynard Keynes

  8. Design to dismantle

  9. Design for mistakes
