Smith presents “Ecovillage,” a kit with four pieces. It is left up to the user to decide how the pieces go together to form a larger communal structure. The first test case for this project will be built in Nicaragua. Next, Smith introduces a project titled “Wanna Start a Commune?” She identifies the next generation of sustainable practices as resource sharing. Expanding on the concept of resource sharing, Smith proposes to turn suburban cul-de-sacs into communes. She identifies the cul-de-sac as the most realistic existing model for conversion to a resource sharing organization.
