Open P2P Design brings open source and peer-to-peer dynamics inside a community-centered design process, in order to have real co-design projects with people and their communities. We can use Open P2P Design for co-designing Open Design processes or commercial or public services with open and peer-to-peer dynamics, starting from communities and involving them inside the design process. We can also use it for analyzing an existing business and opening to collaboration some of its activities, or design new ones in order to start a collaboration with a community of users.

01. A metadesign toolkit
01.01 Open P2P Design as Metadesign
While
Open Source software
has already developed various viable business models and design processes, other Open or DIY projects (like Hardware, Design, Public Services, Open Business, ... ) are still trying to defne their bestpractices. In order to develop new kind o projects that radically changes the way we design, we need new designtools and processes. Moreover, i an open project can be modifed in dierent localities, there may be the need totake into account this. Dierent cities and regions could have dierent materials, tools, companies, services andespecially dierent culture and practices. Design tools and processes should be then careully organized andmodifable by anyone.Luckily, we can also use the same design tools and processes that we have now in order to build the new ones: thisis what designers call
metadesign
.
Metadesign
is an emergent design culture that ocus its activities more on thedesign tools and processes than on the fnal design projects; it is a critical and reexive thinking about theboundaries, techniques, goals and contexts o the design practice.What is important to note now, then, is that developing new tools is not a dicult and only or proessionalspractice, instead it should be done more than oten, as a reexive thinking on what we are designing and how weare designing it. Furthermore, it is important to develop such new processes and tools collaborating together,adopting an Open Source strategy and P2P social dynamics.These reasons are behind the development o 
Open P2P Design
, a metadesign methodology that was frst developedin 2005/2006. It has been in the process o testing and development since then, and currently its developmentprocess is part o a research at the
Media Lab
o the
Aalto University – School of Art and Design
, Helsinki (Finland).The main idea behind Open P2P Design is that we co-design an open and p2p process with communities, in order tomake it ft or the specifc local context. For example, i we want to ocus on Open Design projects, then theprocess is a design one (that will eventually lead to Open projects). Furthermore: it's not only a design process, butit's also a prototyping and manuacturing one, in the broader sense; it's about organizing an open process andabout making it real at the same time. In this way, it is possible to co-design, run, test and modiy an open processin a collaborative way.
Open P2P Design
basically brings open source and peer-to-peer dynamics inside a community-centered designprocess, in order to have real co-design projects with people and their communities. We can use Open P2P Designor co-designing Open Design processes or commercial or public services with open and peer-to-peer dynamics,starting rom communities and involving them inside the design process. We can also use it or analysing anexisting business and opening to collaboration some o its activities, or design new ones in order to start acollaboration with a community o users.Technology, tools and the sharing o inormation alone are not enough or setting up successul openorganizations: we can co-design such open organizations, tools and technologies with the active participation o communities that will use them. Since every locality and its communities have dierent eatures and needs,dierent available resources and knowledge, it is important to think about the proper design tools and processescareully, and redesign them i necessary.This
toolkit
was prepared or the Open P2P Design activities during the
DMY International Design Festival Berlin2011
, that happened as part o the
World Design Capital Helsinki 2012: Open Helsinki (FI) 
in the
MakerLab
area.Beside the lectures, during the Maker Lab we will help designers, makers, companies and whoever is interested indeveloping an Open and collaborative project, starting rom a community or rom an existing activity.The toolkit is based on two previous versions, developed or “UrbanLabs 08” (Barcelona - Spain, October 2008,
 
) and “Creative Cities in Imagination Society: 5th Congress o Creativityand Innovation” (Caceres - Spain, November 2009, 
).Together with the presentations o the lectures, it can be downloaded rom:
