This message is really for Graham Meltzer, but I decided to copy this list
since it is, after all, a resource center too!

Graham, you should get a copy of a publication I "reviewed" here a while
back called "Assessment of Built Projects for Sustainable Communities"
(September 1993, Perks & Van Vliet, CMHC-Ottawa), which explores the
environmental sustainability of nine (out of 30) housing projects in Sweden.
The key point that these researchers make, at least as far as this thread is
concerned, is that "user-participant design (cohousing) of the neighbourhood
and housing" is essential to the success of these projects.

I would be happy to send a copy to you if you post your address to me.  It
is available for free, at least to Canadians anyway, from our national
housing agency, who sponsored the research.

Their address is:

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp.
700 Montreal Rd.
Ottawa, Ontario
K1A 0P7

(613) 748-2000
