Artist Damien Hirst Will Build Eco-Friendly Town in British Countryside
Locals worry that plans for 750 new homes might not be all that sustainable
Damien Hirst is the world's richest living artist, which might explain why he's now turning his hand to property development. The British-born artists has plans for 750 eco homes in the North of Devon, England. Complete with wind turbines on the roof, photovoltaic solar panels and state-of-the-art insulation, Hirst wants to try and provide a blueprint for other parts of the country. Even though the development plan is well-meaning, there has already been strong opposition from some locals.
