Self-updating and visually captivating, the Open Source Architecture Manifesto by Carlo Ratti Associati is part of the Adhocracy show at the Istanbul Design Biennial.

Visitors are welcome to watch as a plotter posts the content of a Wikipedia page onto a wall. It writes the text from the Open Source Architecture Manifesto and even incorporates instant updates as changes and edits are made to the webpage. This piece is the brainchild of Walter Nicolino and Carlo Ratti, who are the duo behind Carlo Ratti Associati.

The project was the result of creating the webpage to make an open-source architecture manifesto that takes into account the ideals it preaches. Internet folk are invited to change, edit and evolve the page, as the plotter crosses out and overwrites passages with each interaction. Stats for Changing Webpage Art Trending: Older & Mild
