The development of the third phase of open architecture

WithShuichi Matsumura

In Chapter 5, I discuss actual cases after the third phase of open architecture to address the role of new type of experts in further developing opportunities for people’s independence. In this book, I will refer to this new role as a “manner” to represent the behavior expected from experts.

I will explain the concept in the following seven sections: “Visualizing the vast availability of space resources,” “Sparking and directing users’ creativity to utilize existing space,” “Sharing information related to experiences creating ‘places,’” “Forming a community of allies to act all around the world,” “Achieving sustainable town management,” “Teamwork between businesses and organizations,” and “Open architecture for the people.” In conclusion I will discuss the “manner” required in the future.
