Joani, thanks for point out the history article: http://www.kollektivhus.nu/eng/sidor/history/colhisteng08.pdf The 11 page article by Dick Urban Vestbro from November 2008 is in English but has a little Swedish in illustrations. He traces "collaborative housing" back a very long way. I found it interesting how he found changing women's roles to be so much a motivation for the evolution of collaborative housing. Other trends seemed to be toward preparation of meals by residents rather than by a paid staff. This seemed to be more possible as communities were designed for fewer people. The term "unit" in the paper refers to a community while we use the term "unit" for a households residence within a community. I found it interesting that the community Fardknappen that I visited was mentioned. I described it here: http://lists.cohousing.org/pipermail/cohousing-l/msg11516.html Fred -- Jun 22: Robert Reich's Rx for real health care reform http://www.salon.com/opinion/feature/2009/06/20/healthcare/print.html Fred H.
