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. Here is our weekly progress update (#49) covering our development and accomplishments for the week of January 27, 2014:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION @1:47
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:22
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @5:15
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @8:24
OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS: @9:24
We are teaching people how to make a change in the world 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:
We are teaching people how to make a change in the world 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 last week the core team ran calculations on a 5th roof and wall design for the aquapinis & walipinis. All of these except the “full greenhouse” include shutters that we will build to cover all glazed areas at night:
We are teaching people how to make a change in the world 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 last week the core team took the 3-D work of Devin Porter (3D Graphics Design Specialist) for the hands in the Tropical Atrium center of the Earthbag Village and we began adding in the terraces, paths, and other details:
This last week the core team completed the Earthbag Village central ring planting plan on paper. Details for each of these plants can be found on the Food Forest Page. The 3-D source for all of these plants is on the Sketchup Plants Page. Here’s the planting plan for the central ring of the village:
Philip Gill (Interior and Furniture Designer and Owner of Philip Gill Design) continues to develop the 2nd furniture layout for the Earthbag Village homes. There are two similar designs with the first being for children or a summer camp type of situation. It features two single beds and storage drawers underneath, two desks, two desk chairs, a chifferobe and a ladder to the loft/storage above. The second is for interns or colleges students and has all the same elements as the first, but with added storage, file drawers on wheels (to come), and work-space tops that fold out for working, eating, etc. This way students can also sit at their bed and work or they could roll these together to create one bigger worktable.
We are teaching people how to make a change in the world through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, can provide laundry for over 300 people, beautiful, spacious, saves resources, saves money, and saves space:
This last week the team finished adding the final two windows to the social dome (for natural lighting in the hallways) and also added in bench and stair details to the indoor and outdoor pool:
Karl Harris (Architect Drafter, Designer, and founder of Harris Design & Technology Services) also finished the resizing of all dome wall thicknesses in CAD to reflect the accurate thickness of just 5 and 5/16″!
