Thinking beyond sustainability is needed if mainstream implementation is to happen. What this means is going beyond the common sustainability areas like food, energy, housing and also including sustainable and forward-thinking approaches to education, economic design, and social architecture. Putting these together and open sourcing and free-sharing them is One Community’s approach to creating a global collaboration of teacher/demonstration communities and hubs working together to live in and create even more of these hubs for The Highest Good of All.

One Community is thinking beyond sustainability 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 updated the Tropical Atrium open source hub with new sections describing all the main features.
We also created 16 new Tropical Atrium breakout pages for sharing all the different open source components.
Additionally, we created this new Tropical Atrium header and Facebook image.
And the core team continued building the Sketchup 3D version of the Net-zero bathroom for the Earthbag Village. This last week we added in the second level of barrels along with the curved wall and the platforms for support. We also created the opening in the wall and set up the entry door to have access to the water collection area.
In addition to this, the core team created and added these new feature images to the Tree House Village (Pod 7) page. We’re seeking an interior designer to help us finish the missing images.
Ashwin Patil (Web Developer) also finished a 4th round of revisions for the Earthbag Village (Pod 1) search engine, as shown here:
Alena Thompson (Mechanical Engineer) completed her 19th week helping with the Net-zero Communal Bathroom Designs. This week’s focus was load calculations and related tutorial text and imagery.
Christian Ojeda (Mechatronic Engineer) completed his 17th week helping with the heat-recycling Communal Eco-shower and Vermiculture Bathroom designs. This week’s focus was updates to the water storage layouts shown here.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued helping us create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 74 of Dean’s work, this week’s focus was building table and chair details needed for the central dining and presentation space renders.
Hamilton Mateca (AutoCAD and Revit Drafter and Designer) also finished his 46th week helping with the Compressed Earth Block Village design and render details. This week’s focus was building and adding pergolas to the layout, as shown here.
Aparna Tandon (Architect) continued her work on the Compressed Earth Block Village external elements. What you see here is her 28th week of work, focusing on more development of Zone 8 and the pergolas needed for around the labyrinth, as shown here.
One Community is thinking beyond sustainability 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, the core team continued work on the DIY Pipe Furniture tutorial page. This week’s focus included creating and adding new imagery and text to the Pipe Table section and re-organizing the different furniture sections. You can see some of this work here.
Haoxuan “Hayes” Lei (Structural Engineer) also continued the work on the City Center structural engineering. This week’s focus was more wind load calculations and roof design updates, some of which you can see here.
Shubham Agrawal (Electrical Engineer) also finished his final round of content addition and edits for the wind power tutorials developing behind the scenes. You can see some pictures of this work here.
One Community is thinking beyond sustainability 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 explored the design needs and cost for adding different floor types to the Transition Kitchen. Here’s an image created for this purpose.
One Community is thinking beyond sustainability 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:
