Ritorno all’abitare. Una cooperativa in città

A project / research for SEAO cooperative
Italy
2010-2012

The cooperative type that maintains the property undivided is a peculiar one, especially when, after more than 130 years of history, this is revealed as one of the best ways of dwelling. How this optimum way of living together could be still actual? Is it possible to plan the city in a way that permits this kind of social enterprise to expand? How is the architecture of this special kind of houses? The project investigates alternatives with a dense but low rise development, with shared but also intimate dwelling spaces. Particular attention is given to a construction system sustainable and affordable.
