Many of you noticed that we briefly posted a new feature on Friday LILYPAD, A Floating Ecopolis for Ecological Refugees, and many of you have questioned its disappearance. It also appears to have been picked up by a number of blogs since we posted it.

We're going to keep the feature offline while we explore this issue further, but feel free to review both projects, as they're both quite inspiring.

people can think similar ideas...
Wow, I remember Glenn Small... he worked in the garage of the new house-studio he and his wife designed and built in 1980 in Venice... with composting toilets and other sustainable measures.
The late '70s, now THOSE were some green years....
you must also remember some of the green champions of today looked down that stuff as hippie shit... green was associated with ugly!
composting toilets - now thats where its at
Obivously the Playstation generation is getting into practice, this is about the 4th design over the last couple of weeks that looks clean out of Final Fantasy.

Those are some sweet ass images.....
On my recent holidays I passed an awesome housing block close to Nice, and had to think about this thread:
