Decoding Spaces Toolbox
Our partner Martin Dennemark is involved in the development of the DeCoding Spaces Toolbox.
DeCodingSpaces Toolbox for Grasshopper is a collection of analytical and generative components for algorithmic architectural and urban planning. The toolbox is free software released by the Computational Planning Group (CPlan) and is a result of long term collaboration between academic institutions and praxis partners across the globe with the common goal to increase the efficiency and quality of architecture and urban planning.

Foundation for Transportation
Foundation for Transportation: How Bochum transports the Future through the Commons
you can have a look at my master thesis here. There is a little video and by clicking the download link below, you can download the full report.
All previous three industrial revolutions shaped the site of the Opel factory in Bochum, Germany through great spatial, economical and social impacts. Once a symbol of prosperous growth and structural change, this monument of mass-manufacturing is now closed and being demolished. On the remaining Ruins of Capitalism this project proposes a new direction for another fourth industrial revolution. Building up on the old industry, the last remaining hall of the factory will be transformed to an Incubator of a Revolution that is collaborative and open in nature and will give growth to a commons-based local industry. Ultimately it forms a Foundation for Transportation that allows the emergence of a new planning paradigm evolving out of the open-source culture and utilizing new technologies in the most reasonable and trustworthy way.
