I am currently enrolled in a masters program for landscape arch. This semester we are concentrating on ecovillages and sustainable communities. I am currently looking for BUILT examples around the world from which I can gain knowledge of these systems, draw ideas, and use as case studies for our class project.
I would be most grateful for any information on existing sites, etc.
