Le Studium Conference, 12-13 March 2012, Tours, France This Le Studium conference aims to look at co-housing initiatives in the perspective of sustainable spatial development. Its purpose is both to take stock of ongoing research and practices, as well as to set a research agenda and establish future collaborations. In the 21st century, self-organized co-housing is re-appearing in many European countries, in new forms and larger numbers. Cohousing, cooperatives de logement, Genossenschaften or Samenhuizen are types of collaborative housing in which residents actively participate in the design and operation of their own neighbourhoods. Co-housing is sometimes called 'intentional communities': Cohousing residents are consciously committed to living as a community [http://www.cohousing.org/]. The physical design encourages both social contact and individual space. Intentional communities can be identified by a deliberate attempt to realize a common, alternative way of life outside mainstream society. [Poldervaart 2002] Three tracks: * Session 1 : Co-housing projects: pilots of eco-engineering ? * Session 2 : Emerging lifestyles, new communities ? * Session 3 : Small-scale solution for a minority, or a potential transformation of housing provision? Call for papers We welcome contributions for each of these tracks from all disciplines. To be presented on this conference, papers need to be based on empirical research on self-managed co-housing and discuss at least 1 case-study. Invited speakers: Helen Jarvis, Newcastle University Adri Duivesteijn, Alderman spatial development Almere Co-housing researchers, inhabitants, networks, professionals, architects and social agents from different countries.
