Alastair is a designer with 00 (‘zero zero’), London. Although he trained and practices in architecture, his work extends outside its traditional framework, looking at the economic, social and technological systems behind it. He is a co-founder of WikiHouse, an open source construction system which is using digital manufacturing to radically democratise the production of cities. He leads ‘A Right to Build’, an ongoing project addressing the economics of housing crisis, and the future of democratic city planning and citizen-led development for resilient housing, infrastructure, neighbourhoods and cities.
Aside from his design projects, we has written for numerous architectural, design & policy journals, lectures widely and advises on issues around cities, housing policy, web democracy and the 'third industrial revolution'.
