To assemble a group of interdisciplinary members (more than 25) to advise on and create a urban city quest for an urban design system (www.makabusi.com) is to facilitate mass collaboration over the web to incorporate innovative data processing methods, including the ability to input alternative search algorithms for urban design purposes. The aim would be to tap into the power of open-source initiatives, to globalize the search for like-minded intelligence and empower a new generation of urban design enthusiasts to create better villages, towns and cities.

Prime International would back the launch of this new system with a major storytelling and awareness campaign whose goal is to inspire millions to participate.


In order to fulfill MAKABUSI’s wish for all world citizens to become active participants in the search for better urban designed communities, two distinct steps must be taken. The initial step is upgrading the technology applications from a single house off the grid to an incremental scale involved with at MAKABUSI in order to open the data to the world, to generate electrical power “from the ground-up”.

Several companies have already stepped up to provide and/or build the appropriate “software” and “hardware” technologies to accomplish this goal. The next step is to create a urban design system that facilitates mass participation in the search via the web. A brainstorming virtual meeting with MAKABUSI is proposed in the New Year to engender a variety of commitments to develop this urban design system and empower a new generation of city building enthusiasts.
