I am interested in this too, especially in relationship to architecture. I'd
be grateful for references to any existing publications.

I can point (without accessing the quality) to the following:

1. During GameSetandMatch II conference there was some talk (and scepticism)
about open source in architecture.

Châtelet, Valérie, 'Architecture from Location to Nonlocation, from Presence
to Absence', in GameSetAndMatch II: The Architecture Co-Laboratory on
Computer Games, Advanced Geometries and Digital Technologies, ed. by Kas
Oosterhuis and Lukas Feireiss (Rotterdam: Episode Publishers, 2006), pp.
502-507

Kaspori, Dennis, 'A Communism of Ideas: Towards an Architectural Open Source
Practice', in GameSetAndMatch II: The Architecture Co-Laboratory on Computer
Games, Advanced Geometries and Digital Technologies, ed. by Kas Oosterhuis
and Lukas Feireiss (Rotterdam: Episode Publishers, 2006), pp. 508-513

Schachter, Amanda and Alexander Levi, 'New Motion, New Transparencty', in
GameSetAndMatch II: The Architecture Co-Laboratory on Computer Games,
Advanced Geometries and Digital Technologies, ed. by Kas Oosterhuis and
Lukas Feireiss (Rotterdam: Episode Publishers, 2006), pp. 514-520

2. This paper also uses the open-source metaphor.

Haque, Usman, 'The Choreography of Sensations: Three Case studies of
Responsive Environmental Interfaces', in Proceedings Of The Tenth
International Conference On Virtual Systems And Multimedia, ed. by Hal
Thwaites (Ann Arbor, MI: OCSL Press, 2005), pp. 432-441

3. This PhD thesis is about Christiania, which is an "open source" town.
