These 25 Cities Have Grown the Most Since 2010 | 24/7 Tempo | Page 6

These 25 Cities Have Grown the Most Since 2010 | 24/7 Tempo | Page 6 | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
Conroe — one of 11 cities in Texas on this list — more than doubled in size since 2000, going from nearly 37,000 to more than 77,000. The population growth slowed down a little bit at the turn of the decade, with just about 20,000 making this city about 40 miles from north of Houston their new home since 2010. Some reasons why people move there are cheaper and newer homes, as well as being closer to nature. City officials expect Conroe to hit 100,000 residents by 2020.

Solar-powered Ring House heals a scarred hilltop landscape in Greece

Solar-powered Ring House heals a scarred hilltop landscape in Greece | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
On the southern coast of Crete, Greek architectural firm decaARCHITECTURE has turned a commission for a modern residence into an opportunity for landscape preservation. Named the Ring House for its rounded shape, the house was created to follow the existing topography and looks like an extension of its hilltop location. The site had been scarred by environmentally insensitive infrastructural development but has now recovered its original morphology and has been replanted with native flora.
