Open source construction set
A former physicist, Marcin Jakubowski, has started a DIY effort known as Open Source Ecology with their primary project being the Global Village Construction Set. This network of farmers, engineers, and collaborators has a goal of creating an entire platform of open-source, self-sufficient technology with the capabilities of building an entire community with all the modern conveniences. Described as a “mad scientist” by The Atlantic, the project is certainly an ambitious one and probably the most inclusive of any sustainability project ... to date.
