WikiHouse Unveils World’s First Two-Storey Open-Source House at London Design Festival | Via

WikiHouse, the open-source platform for designing and sharing house designs that anyone can be manufacture and assemble in days with no construction skills, has unveiled ‘ 4.0′ their first ever two-storey design at this year’s London Design Festival. Built by a team of volunteers and costing less than £50,000, the new prototype on display at The Building Centre also demonstrates the possibilities of other open source systems, with the code for the electrics, ventilation system and sensors all available on open-source platforms.

The prototype aims to educate visitors to the London Design Festival about how the WikiHouse works, with the interior layers of the building being exposed in places to show how the CNC-manufactured timber structure fits together, and how it becomes air-tight and waterproof through the use of Tyvek waterproofing and Equitone fibre cement cladding. The building also invites people to explore the rooftop terrace, the first time that a WikiHouse construction has incorporated a second storey.

This is Reyhaneh Jabbari. She is a 26-year-old woman from Iran. She was arrested in 2007 for killing of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi who she said tried to rape her.
She was sentenced to death by a Tehran court in 2009 and her execution verdict was upheld by Iran’s Supreme Court. Her case drew international outcry and sparked a petition urging her release, which has garnered over 190,000 signatures.
Today is 30 September 2014. And today Reyhaneh was going to be executed. But people reacted this situation and the reactions grow too fast and the execution of Reyhaneh has been postponed to 10 days later.
But there is no guarentee of it. I just want to say, please share this quickly -with everyone- and please spread awareness. We can make a difference, we can stop this!
Islam gives the permission of killing rapist during rape. Because Islam says it’s “SELF DEFENCE”. But Iran doesn’t say that. And then they say it’s Islamıc law. This is not Islam, this is not Islamic law. This is despising women! This is despising humanity! Please reblog this please please! We can make a difference please!
Thank you so much!!!
