G`day, My name is Karen Sharman and I am a senior architecture student at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. I have been interested in Cohousing since I lived, studied and worked in Denmark during 1991. I was so warmed by the concept of Cohousing that I have kept reading and learning about it for the past 3 years. It is only recently that I have had the good fortune to learn of COHOUSING-L and the very topical CoHousing journals. I looked for a way of encorporating Cohousing into my Bachelor of Architecture degree and now, I am indulgently writing my dissertation on it. The aim of my dissertation, is to show that Cohousing emerged as a result of dissatisfactions arising from housing in Post World War II Denmark. By studying relevant philosophical and social issues, I can then attempt to explain why Cohousing is a valuable current housing model. The electronic discussion has been a vital part of learning about the current Cohousing Movement. >From all of my resources, I understand that the Movement is large and growing >in the United States, however ironically, I have little knowledge about >Cohousing in Australia and the existing support groups if any. If there are >any residents of Cohousing in Australia or if anyone knows any contacts, I'd >love to talk to them. I would like to ask what exists here in the true sense >of Cohousing, how the residents/potential residents found out about it, and if >they feel there is a growing Cohousing Movement here, in Australia. Looking forward to your replies, Karen Sharman. _--_|\ Karen Sharman / \ Architecture, UNSW \_.--._/ Australia v u8944601 [at] keystone.arch.unsw.edu.au
