One Community is creating the open source blueprints, instruction manuals, and living example for the architects of the future to build off of and evolve. Our global transformation approach is to create the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration villages that includes plans for duplication of all elements including food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit business design, social architecture, stewardship practices, and more. All of these elements are designed to be duplicated individually or as complete communities, villages, and cities. This is our weekly progress update (#32) covering our team‘s progress for the week of September 30th to October 6th, 2013.

This last week Philip Gill (Interior and Furniture Designer and Owner of Philip Gill Design) began the first stages of interior design for the earthbag village. When he’s done we will open source the Sketchup files and designs different layouts specifically tailored to individuals, shared accommodations, elderly individuals, and families. Here are the very beginnings of this work:
As a collaborative group, the One Community architects of the future are coordinating our efforts with a diverse team living around the world. This image is an example of the correspondences and collaboration happening right now with Devin Porter (3D Graphics Design Specialist) on the earthbag village. Organizing virtually, we use a combination of photoshop and screenshots to convey ideas. In this image blue cirlces are window placements, red are doors, and the green arrows are the exit points for the vermiculture toilet tray removal. This week we’ll have 3D exports of Devin’s work integrating these details.
The SEGO Center Duplicable City Hub now has a sliding glass door entry to the Dining Dome, the addition of the updated natural pond, swimming pool, and eco-hot tub design and layout, plus railings for all external-facing areas.
Our newest member of the future architects team is Rob Gjerde (Swimming Pool Design & Construction Expert and owner of Sorico Design and Consulting). Working in collaboration with Meg West (Landscape Architect, Permaculturalist, and founder of Meg West Design) and Jennifer Engelmeier (Eco-pool and Spa Specialist and founder of www.LoveYourPool.com, Rob has finished the natural pond, pool, and eco-hot tub designs for the SEGO Center Duplicable City Hub. Here is what we believe will be the final layout for these areas:
We see the Education for Life program as a huge part of creating the future we know is possible. This last week completed the foundations for the Lesson Plan Mindmap Template. In the center of the template will be a weekly theme and the arms around it are the foundational subjects that will be taught within the context of that theme. Completed lesson plan mindmaps coming soon.
