One issue that was touched upon during the LDM thread was the idea that creating homes that look alot the same, such as those usually created via the Danish model, DON'T add anything to the feeling of community. I have been recently wondering about this. Members of clubs, teams, monastaries, etc intentionally choose certain outward displays to advertise their bonding with each other. These displays take the form of shared dress,haircuts, behaviors, ritual, etc. So maybe everyone living in houses that look pretty much the same (like Nyland) would create some sense of bonding? What do you folks think that are living in fairly homogeously designed homes? Does the uniformity of home appearance in some way add to the sense of belonging or community?
