There are two separate issues here, at least: A. * If you believe that you don't need a broker to invest wisely in the mutual funds. * If you believe that you don't need a mechanic to service your car. * If you believe that you can create your own neighborhood/communiy. * Then why wouldn't you design your own neighborhood/community without an architect? B. If you are going to use an architect: * Would you really hire anyone who believes that there is a right "Danish model" for building successfull collaborative/cooperative/cohousing? * Would you hire an architect who had never had a previous collaborative/cooperative/cohousing neighborhood (that he or she designed) evaluated by a third party utilizing non-obtrusive research methods, a year after the folks moved in? * Would you hire an architect who hasn't studied the research on the social and psychological aspects of medium density housing?
