Kazuo Shinohara's house This encyclopedia will not be, is not the “state of art” of architecture in 2015. It is beyond Architecture, it is the content springed from a community focused on learning about Architecture using different digital paths. It is a flow. There are contents coming from Teachers via the reading of the pdfs and contents shared by the community along the different social platforms and… lot of references to YOUR works! This is very special :0 Encyclopedia is NOT Archive. Encyclopedia has not to be stucked to the content of the daily course delivery. Each article/pad is a hub that drives to new subjects (text, video, sound). Each article is written with LINKS to other articles (sometimes they are not yet filled with content but the community will quickly find relevant content for every article) Using an editable website suggests a shared authorship of the articles/pads. It is a collaborative work…in progress.

Be adventurous, be generous, add your “little grain of arena”, your “personal touch” to #Encyclopedia about: concepts, heroes, musics, poems, howto, recipes for teachers…: #YouAreWelcome!

All these articles are under a unique name (= workspace) : “Architecture1o1” and so the very special url to go to Encyclopedia is: https://architecture1o1.hackpad.com/

Have Fun!
