The OS (OpenStructures) project explores the possibility of a modular construction model where everyone designs for everyone on the basis of one shared geometrical grid. It initiates a kind of collaborative Meccano to which everybody can contribute parts, components and structures.

In what way does your proposal contribute to the open society?
An open modular system has the potential to generate flexible and dynamic puzzle structures rather than uniform modular entities.
It will generate objects that have the ability to evolve and integrate old, new, cheap, expensive, original, bootlegged, manufactured and crafted components over time.
It will introduce variety within modularity, hereby not only stimulating re-use cycles of various parts and components but also enabling collaborative (and thus exponential) innovation within hardware construction.
