Demonstrating community as a path to meeting the six human needs will help these open source models to more quickly become self-replicating. A place where people are happier and more fulfilled is a place more people want to be. We are open sourcing our version of this, and all the foundations as DIY-replicable, so people can evolve it and demonstrate their own ideas of what this means too. We are doing this for “The Highest Good of All” and as a path to global sustainability.

One Community’s physical location will forward this movement as the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. This is the June 23rd, 2019 edition (#326) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @9:34
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @10:51
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @12:43
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @13:15
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @14:41
One Community is demonstrating community as a path to meeting the six human needs through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:
This week Brianna Olsen (Sustainability Researcher) completed her 3rd week researching the most sustainable insulation options. This week she focused on adding the specifications of each product that were still missing, contacting the specific companies for answers to remaining questions, further looking into straw bale construction fire resistance, and initial content creation for the tutorial.
Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 46th week helping with Earthbag Village renders. This week he finished work on the people, plant, and texture updates to this final view of the Earthbag Village looking Southwest.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 56th week developing the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was finishing the next round of revisions and updates for the Bed Frame section shown here. Now it goes to the core team for testing in 3D.
One Community is demonstrating community as a path to meeting the six human needs through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:
This week Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Design Pros) completed their 26th and final week helping. This finished the Duplicable City Center interior design details and what you see here is the complete storyboard set for all their amazing work.
Yuqiao Zhang (Architectural Designer/Drafter) completed his 5th week helping finalize the City Center AutoCAD and SketchUp files. This week’s focus was updating the Sketchup and AutoCAD files with the correct furniture and design details for the Social Dome, Dining Dome Basement, and pool. You can see some of this work here.
Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 7th week working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week he ran parametric comparisons of the different glass assemblies in terms of energy performance and monthly heat load comparisons.
Elizabeth Kahn (Environmental Consultant) also completed her 18th week as a researcher. This week she continued researching the most sustainable faucet options by finishing benchmarking the sustainability of all the major faucet-providing companies and writing the results summaries that we’ll be adding to the website. You can see her work here.
And Zeyu Zhu (Mechanical Engineer) also completed his 5th week increasing the capacity and finalizing the rainwater catchment designs for the City Center. This week he updated the zonal graph for the rain collection, calculated each zonal area, updated all the slopes, and attempted an initial 3D model of the dome.
One Community is demonstrating community as a path to meeting the six human needs through Highest Good food that is more diverse, more nutritious, locally grown and sustainable, and part of our open source botanical garden model to support and share bio-diversity:
This week the core team continued with week 14 of our development of the open source lake and water-retention landscape design tutorial. This week we created the isolated views shown here of all the dam types and related topographical maps for placement.
One Community is demonstrating community as a path to meeting the six human needs through Highest Good education that is for all ages, applicable in any environment, adaptable to individual needs, far exceeds traditional education standards, and more fun for both the teachers and the students. This component of One Community is about 95% complete with only the Open Source School Licensing and Ultimate Classroom construction and assembly details remaining to be finished. With over 8 years of work invested in the process, the sections below are all complete until we move onto the property and continue the development and open sourcing process with teachers and students – a development process that is built directly into the structure of the education program and everything else we’re creating too:
This week the core team continued working on the redesign of the Ultimate Classroom. This week we updated the shelving unit, wall colors, and added a window shelf and beanbags to the Indigo room. We also added colors to the walls and a science table to the Green room and colored the walls, updated the table, and added decorations to the Blue room.
One Community is demonstrating community as a path to meeting the six human needs through a Highest Good society approach to living that is founded on fulfilled living, the study of meeting human needs, Community, and making a difference in the world:
This week the core team working with Brian Gilb (Project Management Professional – PMP) continued developing the Highest Good Network Software Charter. The focus this week was the dashboard functionality, volunteer-user experience for accessing information, and navigation within the software.
The core team also completed the hours estimates for the complete work breakdown structure for everything remaining to be finished so we can begin construction. You can see most of this completed work here.
And Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) continued with his 34th week as part of the marketing team by continuing development of the Branding OCG initial data visualizations, keyword research, and researching and analyzing user behaviors and search histories. You can see some of this work here.
