Co-housing as a lifestyle: how does the spatial organisation influence on social relationships?
In the European cities, especially in Scandinavia and German-speaking countries, the idea of "co-housing" (collaborative housing) is gaining popularity. It is an alternative housing scheme when several apartments share a variety of common spaces: playrooms, gardens, canteens, libraries. Is it possible to create an apartment block meeting your needs, and choose nice neighbours? What funding schemes exist? How do these communities live and how do they change the city?

Larisa Tsvetkova will reveal the subject, and after her speech there will be a discussion with the participation of MARCH students and graduates, developing the idea of cooperative housing as a source of new values in the life of a city-dweller. Moderator – Alexander Ostrogorsky.
