Home of OSArch
|The Open-Source Architecture Community brings together like-minded users and developers who share a common goal: that the built environment can be designed, constructed, operated, and recycled with free/libre software and open-source software with increased transparency, and a more ethical approach.|
We encourage the community to share what they're working on, use more free software in what is currently a proprietary-dominated market, and learn more about what's out there.
This wiki is brand-new. Please expect changes. Please feel free to contribute! See How to contribute to OSArch.
A good way to find what's on this site is to browse the directories below and the list of categories.
AEC resource directories
The AECO Free Software Directory is at the core of this project, enjoy browsing our directory for interesting solutions and let us know if you've overlooked anything.
Open Data Standards and their file formats allow different software packages to communicate, here's where you can read about them.
Open Data is great for testing and experimenting so we're collecting link to these resources.
We are actively looking for examples of real-world projects we can share. Know a project? Get in touch with us on the OSArch forum!
