This paper presents and develops the concept of Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAO) as a platform for collaboration, via a design scenario in which Blockchain (BC) technology is implemented for validation purposes. The envisioned scenario simulates designers proposing multiple solutions for a given task and adopting shape grammars and environmental analysis and regulations as design drivers. Proposed solutions are uploaded, stored, presented, and evaluated in a DAO in which the decision process gets validated via the reputation of the participants and its governance system. This study lays the foundation and ignites the development of a larger framework in which design collaboration and competition are fostered and results secured, impacting design value and financial transactions.
