What if Wikitecture Works?

This has been a truly amazing phenomenon to witness (screenshots here HERE, Theory’s Wikitecture protocol HERE).

Through the revisions, additions and edits of at least 11 different contributors and several phases of schematic evolution, it seems to have found a kind of singular life and identity of its own. It is clearly unlike what any one of the contributors would have designed on their own. It is sophisticated in its response to site cues, and nearly all of the main program elements have already been successfully achieved. The design has a clear sense of hierarchy and order – and all in the first 10 days of development.

Its an infant project with fantastic and far reaching potential for the architectural profession. In imagining these possibilities, I can’t help but to wonder… what if Wikitecture works?
