Harry, All this banter back and forth regarding home design has gotten me very confused. My experience is that some architects are very good and some are not. Some take into account the needs of the user and some design soley to satisfy their ego's. The beauty in the CoHousing model is that rarely if ever are the architects or designers working on their own. They have a great deal of guidance (somethimes too much and sometimes not enought) from the resident user group. IMHO the CoHousing designs which have been completed are a collaborative effort between trained professionals and the user group. This concept is IMHO what the CoHousing process is all about. People coming together to create a better living environment. As my friend and consensus mentor Caroline Estes has stated "Everyone holds a piece of the truth." and I feel this certanly holds true when it comes to the creation of CoHousing communities. Thanks for the thought provoking conversations. In Collaboration, Bill Paiss Nyland
