The role of the architect would be, in this scenario, to design the skeleton or masterplan. Every architectural element in the scene is simply a bounding geometry or volume. It can be broken down into points. The objects that would populate these points would be designed by the people or a group of people from the community. This could be done by hand, through software, or in realtime using thoughts and emotions through a Brain-Computer Interface. The result is a collage of objects uniting to create the final product. The software helps organize the pieces, create connections, orient them, and connect systems in an environmentally friendly way.
