Let's club together to build a house?  Actually this phrase is the idea of Chelyabinsk project “The Ants”. The authors have come up with a scheme to invest in construction through Crowdfunding. How does this work? How to make the building process as clear as possible? And where is planned the first building, which can be observed online? Alexander Medvedev, one of project’s authors, gave the answers on these issues in the course of Pecha Kucha.
