This page is the open source and free-shared Tropical Atrium time investment projections page that will evolve with the open source project-launch blueprinting of the One Community Tropical Atrium. When complete it will include detailed analysis of the time it took One Community to build the complete Tropical Atrium as a sustainable teacher/demonstration community, village, and city component. We’re first open sourcing all these details for a 3-dome cluster as part of our crowdfunding campaign, then we’ll do the same for the complete Earthbag Village (including the Tropical Atrium) and Duplicable City Center®, and then the other 6 villages.
This page is specifically for the time investment details of the Tropical Atrium. As part of our global transformation approach to Highest Good housing, our goal is to demonstrate the Tropical Atrium as a modular component that could be built as part of any of the 7 One Community village models. For a completed example of the level of detail that we will be providing for all 7 village models, visit the Earthbag Village Build-time Investment page.
