Collective Housing | Architecture

Architecture concept by Simion Popa

Originally, the concept of collective housing was developed to help the daily lives of women by integrating housing, work and care. During the 1960’s the collective way of living went through a revival based on the spirit of solidarity as well as student and feminist movements. The importance of social networks and cooperation with neighbors became increasingly important in order to reduce the domestic work of shrinking households. While in the 1980’s around 50 new collective houses were built in Sweden, until recently the collective way of living has barely existed in Finland. Even though collective housing as a concept has spread in western countries, in most cases it is still understood as an alternative way of living.

  1. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    web will be much more useful than ever before.
