About | Green Village Set along the terraced slopes of the Ayung River in Sibang, Bali, Green Village is a master-planned community of eighteen dramatically unique homes, each custom designed, rigorously engineered, and hand-constructed to embody the inherent strengths and versatility of bamboo. Within walking distance of the Green School, the architectural innovations and structural vocabulary are an extension of the sustainable principles and artisan craftsmanship of the world famous campus. According to Elora Hardy, creative director of the Ibuku design team, “Green Village has redefined the potential of sustainable materials. It is a place where where people connect with nature. Homeowner Peter Barge says “Being an active permaculture farmer with a twenty year background in Asian real estate, I was looking for a Bali residence that made good investment sense but had minimal impact on the environment. A percentage of every villa sold is contributed to Green School’s Balinese Student Scholarship Fund.

'This isn't at all like London': life in Walter Segal's self-build 'anarchist' estate | Cities When visitors arrive at my unconventional street, their first comment is usually: “This isn’t at all like London”. Nestled among trees on a hillside, the 13 half-timbered boxes are routinely mistaken for prefabs, an artists’ colony, Swiss chalets, eco-houses, a kibbutz, Scandinavian holiday cabins, Jamaican beach houses – or even a Japanese temple. In fact, they are the product of an unusual 1980s self-build housing project designed by the pioneering architect Walter Segal, and run by the London Borough of Lewisham in south London. The cul-de-sac is the result of a collaboration between enlightened councillors keen to shorten the housing waiting list, a group of determined locals and a visionary Berlin-born modernist architect. Segal died 30 years ago, in October 1985, before Walters Way was finished. Although there are only around 200 Segal buildings in the UK, he has a strong fan-base among architects and designers, especially those with an interest in community and sustainability.

Slow life in Bosnian villages During one week I got an introduction to life in Bosnian countryside by visiting a couple of villages and the ecological community Zelenkovac. Work on the fields was more modernized than for example in Romania, but far from large high tech farms in Western Europe. People had time, nearly everybody smoked cigarettes constantly and guests were received by offering them shots of homemade rakia, a strong alcohol usually made of plums. In Zagreb, Croatia, I took a train to Karlovac and started hitchhiking from there towards the Bosnian border. A man who built swimming pools for a living took me to the crossroads near Plitvice and a truck driver picked me up from there. It was my first ride ever in a large truck — cool to see the road from high up in the cabin. Hasan was sitting on the terrace of his house and waved me to have a seat beside him and take break. Life was slow, especially for the young people who were on holidays from school or university. Zelenkovac was a lovely place.

Welcome to the 'Agrihood': Homes Built Around Working Farms The local food movement has brought a different kind of neighborhood. One where instead of green ornamental areas, food is grown and community is built. This following article talks about some of them. Gated communities with houses clustered around golf courses, swimming pools, party rooms and fitness centers are common in many suburban areas. But homes built adjacent to functioning farms? Welcome to "agrihoods" — pastoral ventures with healthier foods as their focus. This farm-to-table residential model has been sprouting up everywhere from Atlanta to Shanghai. "Real estate developers are looking for the next big thing to set them apart," said Ed McMahon, senior resident fellow with the Urban Land Institute in Washington. There are many variations of the agrihood, McMahon said. Agrihoods frequently include farmer's markets, inns and restaurants sited in communal hubs where the edibles are processed or sold. A lot of things are driving the trend, McMahon said. via ABCNews Recent articles
