Eco-living paradigm creation can be accomplished through open source and free-shared approaches to sustainable food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, and global stewardship practices. Open sourcing all these as a complete model and new way of living has the potential to provide a better way of life for everyone built on a sustainable foundation. One Community calls this living and creating for The Highest Good of All because it benefits all people and life on our planet.

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 March 19, 2017 edition (#208) 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 EDUCATION: @1:59
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:10
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @3:36
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:47
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:42
One Community is facilitating eco-living paradigm creation 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:
And, we created 7 new icons for the different alternative education philosophies we’ve researched to help make the Highest Good education program the most diverse education program we could.
We also continued creation of renders for The Ultimate Classroom, adding items and updating textures for the purple room, as shown here.
….and we created the initial render of the entire classroom:
One Community is facilitating eco-living paradigm creation 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:
One Community is facilitating eco-living paradigm creation 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:
Alena Thompson (Mechanical Engineer) completed her 6th week helping with the Net-zero Communal Bathroom Designs. This week she researched costs and water savings for the vacuum toilets and developed version 2.0 of a roof catchment design using gutters, as shown here.
Christian Ojeda (Mechatronic Engineer) completed his 5th week helping with the heat-recycling Communal Eco-shower designs. This week’s focus was adding more details to shower structures and starting to model the septic piping and placement for the showers and Vermiculture Bathrooms.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued helping us create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 60 of Dean’s work developing this progression of 46 images for the room furniture and lighting for the Eastside living spaces, leading to this final render.
Dean also started creating this alternative perspective looking South, exploring what a view from the loft might look like, and provided a quick video that shows testing the placement of the blanket.
Hamilton Mateca (AutoCAD and Revit Drafter and Designer) also finished his 34th week helping with the Compressed Earth Block Village (Pod 4) design and render details. This week’s focus was several first-generation renders of various common spaces and creating additional bench components for the outside renders, all shown here.
Aparna Tandon (Architect) additionally continued her work on the Compressed Earth Block Village external elements. What you see here is her 19th week of work, focusing on more updates to the landscaping in front of this village and an extensive update to the main entryway.
Jiming Chen (Designer with his Master’s in Architecture and BA in Engineering) also finished with his help developing the Tree House Village (Pod 7) renders and layouts…
What you see here are Jiming’s 2nd-generation perspective renders:
… and here are the 4th generation renders for the complete village, all of which have also been added to the Tree House Village open source portal:
One Community is facilitating eco-living paradigm creation 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:
Dipti Dhondarkar, (Electrical Engineer) continued with her 31st week of work on the lighting specifics for the City Center. This week’s focus was finishing our light placement and light dispersion testing for the 1st-floor bedrooms and bathrooms of the City Center Living Dome, then adding the bedroom lighting details into AutoCAD.
Renan Dantas (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 12th week working on the Duplicable City Center AutoCAD updates. This week’s focus was finishing continued work on updating the elevations and integration of the new geometry into the basement designs.
And Jin Yu (Structural Engineering Designer) also completed her 8th week working on the concrete foundation design and tutorial details for the Duplicable City Center. This week’s focus was the wall design tutorial details you can see here.
One Community is facilitating eco-living paradigm creation 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:
