Experimental dwelling forms - CoHouse Cultures - are entering the mainstream. But to what extent are they accessible and affordable for all? Community-led housing initiatives are already developing diverse, sustainable neighbourhoods, driven by civil society and increasingly supported buy foundations, cooperatives and municipalities as well as housing companies and developers.
This book contains critical reviews of model projects representing a multifaceted European movement, complemented with photos and drawings. Short texts argue how political and financial conditions can be improved to better realise community housing. Finally, a range of voices offer unconventional and promising strategies.
