Empowering communities through crowdfunded architecture
Crowdfunding has the potential to be a powerful tool for architects and designers. It is becoming a way to democratize the often rarefied world of architecture, making projects happen in neighborhoods lacking access to traditional funding sources.
Crowdfunding architecture is a way to empower communities and gives designers the freedom to rethink traditional approaches to design problems and methods of building.
By minimizing the amount of money needed to invest in projects and opening up to the community for investment, projects are validated by their potential contributions to the community.
How do you think crowdfunding will change the field of architecture and what challenges do you think the concept faces as we look towards the future?
