Brickstarter is a prototype for a 21st century social service. It proposes a new model for how we make shared decisions about shared spaces. It tests the exciting potential of crowd-funding and crowdsourcing against the practical realities of debating, governing, investing in, and ultimately delivering the built environment.
Brickstarter contains 80 dense pages filled with research, new essays and illustrations. This book is a primer for people working on problems at the intersection of crowdfunding/sourcing, social media, urban planning and decision-making. So, in other words, it’s about contemporary cities and how we might create new platforms to enable more effective debate about the future of our shared spaces.
