> I'm a little unclear about your references. Yes, the email ws a bit convoluted. I would like to have a discussion about aesthetics though. If you have a weblink to Rosewind it would probably enable greater discussion. I believer that we can integrate individualism & community-mindedness. I find cohousing distinctive in its integration of these two qualities. (ie. "integration" vs. either-or thinking). If cohousing becomes too community-minded than we have this sense of living in a committee. If it becomes too individualistic than we lose the economies of scale, the antidotes to loneliness. Aesthetically, the same integration can apply. To illustrate: I find that Charles Woods ("Designing Your Natural House" and "A Natural System of House Design") both capture both the ugliness of laissez-faire architecture and the beauty of patterning. :-) Hans Tilstra _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.communityforum.net/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l
