Interesting view of a path forward. Replicable and Resilient. Design elements provide cultural skinning as well sustainable operation within working distance of a large body of water.
My view of granularity may be different, and CIVE does have residential projects more of the scale, if not the particular courtyard style, of the courtyard dwelling. There also is a distinct need for more systems detail (both infrastructure and people) for operational efficiencies. It must learn how to integrate into it's local context/environment.
