Project investigating the use of the web as a medium to allow for wider input on architectural schemes. Utilising the massive capabilities of ubiquitous modern web technology this project explores the potential of web connected computational systems to undertake far reaching user participation for design proposals, option selection and change generation.

This project aims to develop especially tailored web interfaces and server back ends to help wider communities (end-users, local-residents, general public) have real impact on design beyond typical client input and public exhibitions, by providing a web platform that allow them to interact with, comment on and edit 3D environments.

Current work focuses on the development of “GH Shot” cloud based a versioning capture system similar to Github but for parametric software Grasshopper.
