Open Architecture Workshop was founded in 2007 by Scott Glazebrook with an emphasis on promoting these three ideas:

Regenerative Design • Contemporary Craft • Collaborative Innovation.

Regenerative Design has its origins in the sustainable and green design movements but strives for a more holistic approach seeking catalytic interactions creating opportunities for environmental, social, economic, resource, and community growth.

Contemporary Craft describes a hands-on approach to design; a return to authorship and pride of craftsmanship that both recognizes the consistent changes in the design, manufacturing, and construction professions that continue to change the way that we work.

Collaborative Innovation recognizes that all participants in a project will bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and passion to a project. Only through open collaboration and the strengths of intellect, observation, and experience can a design lead to true innovation, beauty, and value.
