Cohousing Getting Mainstream

Hi, all--

  I came across an article in the February 1999 issue of AIArchitect 
stating that the AIA is collecting resource information about 
housing, including "new initiatives."  This article was accompanied 
by two illustrations of cohousing communities (Ecovillage, at 
Ithaca, and the Delray Beach community)

  The article cites other resources that may be interesting/useful to 
cohousers, including "articles...'The New Politics of Urban Sprawl,' 
by Timothy Egan, _New York Times_, and 'Reinventing the 
Lakefront,' by Blair Kamin, _Chicago Tribune_, and books such as 
the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's new 
_Building Innovation for Home Ownership._"  The HUD book was 
actually the source for the two cohousing illustrations.

  I take it as a positive sign to see that both HUD and the AIA are 
presenting cohousing in such a light.
