My name is Nicolas Lamoureux and I am currently living in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I am a dual Canadian-American that spends most of my time in Windsor-Essex County and Detroit, Michigan. I am in my second last semester of my Master of Architecture at Lawrence Technological University in Michigan.
I am a Certified Passive House Consultant and I would eventually like to apply these principles to the WikiHouse processes. I am interested in participatory architecture, design, and construction and I am particularly interested in bringing the participatory concept back into home building (like the communal activity of barn raising). I think that the WikiHouse model would be really useful in Northern communities in Canada as well as tacking the housing affordability crisis through the creating of backyards ADUs (accessory dwelling units) in urban areas.
Looking forward to being done school so that the real learning can begin.
Thanks for creating this space and I am excited to get more into it / involved.
