21. "Kibbutz Neot Semadar; the Arts and a Spirit of Cooperation": Negev Desert.<br />
<br />
Kibbutz Neot Semadar was founded in 1989 to investigate the question: "How can we live and work together in true cooperation?" Often called "The Artist's Kibbutz," in addition to the arts and crafts, the residents have created a flourishing oasis with olive trees, vineyards, and sustainable environmental technology. Pictured here is a cooling tower that is powered by water. All the design motifs and structures were devised and built by the residents.
