Collaboration is essential to the kind of innovative, revolutionary, game-changing innovations necessary to improve our world. Oswall is a collaborative construction system that endeavors to leverage collaboration to make a game-changing leap forward. Oswall (Open Source Wall) is an experimental wall prototype that challenges conventional residential wall construction through an open, collaborative approach to material, fabrication, and installation methods. It proposes an “open source” construction platform in which third-party designers, engineers, scientists, or “do-it-yourselfers” can create, produce, market, and sell “applications” that are plugged into the wall.
