The overall plan for a community of buildings comprising an integrated housing and business facility with service functions such as accomodation for young people, guest rooms and child care areas is presented. Buildings make use of direct gain of solar energy, with the use of a double glass ceiling constructed as a bead wall with shading and insulating properties, - and containing a large number of indoor plants which play a central part in the functioning of the general heating system. The remaining grounds are given over to gardens and grazing areas for domestic animals. The intention is that this community, which will not be dependent on outside energy resources but will use its own renewable ones, should serve as an example of a village in harmony with nature and contributing almost nothing to environmental pollution. The program itself, the arrangements for energy and insulation, the sewage system, and detailed plans of the buildings are described. Prices are also given. (AB).
