Duplicable City Center

One Community is designing an open source and free-shared Duplicable City Center® to help model a redefinition of how people choose to live, save resources, and function as a revenue generator and starting point for DIY and replicable sustainable city construction. It will open source 15 different templates and function as a recreation center, large-scale dining hall, large-scale laundry facility, and alternative for visitors that might not (at first) be comfortable staying in the Earthbag Village or Straw Bale Village.

WHAT IS A DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER

duplicable city center, solution based thinking, One Community, SEGO Center, city hub, recreation center, eco center, sustainable living, ecological living, green living, eco-recreation, group laundry center, for The Highest Good of AllOnce complete, the Duplicable City Center will be the largest open source/DIY structure in the world. As part of One Community it will be a diversely functional, ultra-eco-friendly (LEED Platinum Certifiable), space and resource saving community center designed to be replicated. It is meant to be (but doesn’t need to be) built as the central and/or starting point of any one of the 7 One Community sustainable village models. Its purpose is to support a redefinition of how people live by providing a space more beautiful than most people’s homes that replaces the need for individual kitchens, living rooms, laundry rooms, and other in-home recreation spaces. It is also purposed to function in conjunction with One Community’s open source non-profit and for-profit business models as both a non-profit teacher/demonstration community, village, or city center and/or the central structure of an eco-tourism destination. To our knowledge, it will also be the first open source and DIY commercial building ever to be built.

WHY CREATE A DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER

duplicable city center, solution based thinking, One Community, SEGO Center, city hub, recreation center, eco center, sustainable living, ecological living, green living, eco-recreation, group laundry center, for The Highest Good of AllBuilding a duplicable city center is an opportunity for people to improve their way of living through investing resources in shared space. As part of One Community’s 4-phase global change strategy, we will demonstrate building a city center like this as providing 5 primary benefits:

In traditional society, each family home contains space for socializing with friends, preparing and eating meals, and doing laundry. We believe that we will save significant space and resources by providing shared access to a high-quality environment for these activities within our City Center instead. This, in accordance with our global change methodology, creates another path to the One Community global-change model spreading on its own. Here’s a video tour of the structure and why we think people will be happy for this alternative to traditional housing models:

SUMMARY

duplicable city center, solution based thinking, One Community, SEGO Center, city hub, recreation center, eco center, sustainable living, ecological living, green living, eco-recreation, group laundry center, for The Highest Good of AllThe Duplicable City Center is meant to expand sustainability into the lives of people who might not normally be interested in sustainable living. It will be ADA compliant, LEED Platinum certified, built to California building codes (some of the strictest in the nation), and designed to provide a living environment that most people will consider far superior to their current environment. It will also save people money, conserve resources (when being built and long-term), and function as an optimal starting and/or central expansion point for any of the 7 One Community sustainable village models. We will open source share everything needed for complete duplication of this structure and all of its components as part of our 4-phase strategy for global transformation and spreading comprehensive sustainability.

Q: Why geodesic domes?

Geodesic domes were chosen for a broad diversity of reasons. They are uniquely attractive and provided large open spaces that big groups of people feel really comfortable in. The curved walls and ceiling (in this case 35 feet or 10.7 meters high in the center) use approximately a third less surface area to enclose the same volume as a traditional box home. Geodesic domes also perform well with heating and cooling because the aerodynamics of the rounded walls encourage air to travel efficiently around inside the building. The geodesic design is also especially beneficial structurally with the round structures weathering hurricanes and tornados significantly better than box structures.

Q: How does this structure fit into the global transformation and open source goals of One Community?

As this page states, the Duplicable City Center sets an example of how to save money and resources through cooperative and shared laundry, dining and food preparation, and recreation space for over 300 people. It will also produce significant revenue through its rental rooms. In addition to this, the Duplicable City Center is meant to provide a high-end and profitable option for people who either:

With our Highest Good of All philosophy being to provide something for everyone, the above three benefits of this structure specifically hold value for a higher-end and investment-focused demographic. As part of One Community’s global transformation methodology, we see this as an opportunity for corporations and other private investors to start sustainable and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities with a traditional, contractor-buildable, and profitable building like this and then use our same community membership model to provide people with free housing or a potential revenue stream (see “Community Sponsored Business” example) in return for free labor to help build one of the 7 village models.

Investors save money and members have the potential to build themselves a house and/or a revenue stream in return for investing their time (no financial investment). On top of this, both investors and members are contributing to further spreading and sharing teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities.
