The author has developed several methods for democratizing the architectural design process resulting in a more user specific and open architecture. Our cities need Open Systems in order to grow and become resilient and not rigid ones. People should be able to change the environment they live in, the longer they live in them. The city's Eco-System is about equilibrium and balance, for a city to evolve, this balance is important. The city needs to remain open and unpredictable in order to be resilient. This paper describes which Open Process and tools result in creating Open Buildings. The authors mission to aim for an Open City is being described by implemented case studies. The author's experience and theoretical framework is being developed synchronously. Since architecture and urban design touches on all levels of society, space&matter involves a wide spectrum of disciplines in their design and development process. Before configuring space, understanding socio-cultural processes adds relevance to our designs; our objective is connecting people and their environments. In order to reach a high level of connectivity in the built environment it's relevant to Open up the Design Process. Experts, stakeholders and also end-users can collaborate in the process of creation from an early stage. This makes our architecture more specific and more sustainable.
