Open source and free-shared sustainable food, energy, and housing infrastructure is one path to maximizing sustainability evolution within our lifetime. Adding education, sustainable economics, and social architecture can further this goal by making sustainability more attractive to the average person. In this way, One Community is building a global all-volunteer team collaborating to create a self-replicating model for positive and permanent global change for The Highest Good of All.

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 4th, 2017 edition (#219) 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: @8:39
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @11:03
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @12:50
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @13:15
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @14:05
One Community is maximizing sustainability evolution 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 16th week helping with the Net-zero Communal Bathroom Designs. This week’s focus was adding more details to the related calculations and beginning the process of final renders for the final presentation.
Christian Ojeda (Mechatronic Engineer) completed his 16th week helping with the heat-recycling Communal Eco-shower and Vermiculture Bathroom designs. This week’s focus was the initial layout for the piping that will supply the fountains and spigots.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued helping us create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 71 of Dean’s work that continued developing the lighting and texture details for renders of the Northwest residential wing, as shown here.
Hamilton Mateca (AutoCAD and Revit Drafter and Designer) also finished his 43rd week helping with the Compressed Earth Block Village (Pod 4) design and render details. This week’s focus was continued work on the landscaping elevation, textures, and layout details around the meditation labyrinth, as shown here.
One Community is maximizing sustainability evolution 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:
Haoxuan “Hayes” Lei (Structural Engineer), Shuna Ni (Masters of Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering PhD), and Aravind Vasudevan (BA Mechanical Engineering) also continued their work on the City Center structural engineering. This week’s focus was more wind load calculations, roof design updates, and exploring wood connections and a wood frame option to replace our original plan for steel.
Ramya Vudi (Electrical Engineer) and Shubham Agrawal (Electrical Engineer) continued their work on the City Center electrical design and tutorials with Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant. Here are pictures from our weekly collaborative call continuing to discuss and refine the overall layout:
Jin Yu (Structural Engineering Designer) also completed her 15th week working on the City Center Footers, Foundation, and Flooring tutorial. This week’s focus was writing more content for the water proofing and workflow sections, some of which you can see in these behind-the-scenes screenshots.
One Community is maximizing sustainability evolution 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:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION PROGRESS
One Community is maximizing sustainability evolution 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 last week the core team continued the process of a final proofreading and editing of all 52 lesson plans. This week we completed the Civilization Lesson Plan and the Courage Lesson Plan. This brings us to 24 of 52 finished, which is 46.1% completion.
We also continued working on the renders for the Ultimate Classroom projection-dome feature. This included using the projector option of the lights tool of Twilight Render to generate a couple of renders with different projected images, as shown here.
One Community is maximizing sustainability evolution 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:
Working with the core team, Ashwin Patil (Web Developer) also continued helping develop the new search engines that will make our site easier to navigate. This week we finished the Straw Bale Village search engine and another round of review, edits, and updates to the City Center and Earthbag Village search engines. You can see some of this work in progress here.
