  9. 9. THE OPEN WEB An open source design ecosystem with an R&D team of thousands, where no problem every needs to be solved twice. DISTRIBUTED, DIGITAL FABRICATION The factory of the future is everywhere. Designed globally, made locally. AUTOMATION & DEEP PARAMETRICS Taming complexity with labour saving algorithmic and parametric design. The end of one-size-fits-all. DATA FROM EVERYWHERE Better and more ubiquitous data from sensors and devices everywhere feeding into design and operation. THE THIRD INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
