I am pleased to have been able to line up several architects and developers who've done cohousing work. We need to do more to get the word out--I'm afraid many people do not now what cohousing in, but it is such a good alternative to typical suburbia for many people. It is disappointing that the Newsweek article, "15 Ways to Fix The Suburbs", this week did not mention cohousing. Of course the design criteria mentioned would help any development--old or new--IMHO, but cohousing offers something more. Developers and architects should get by with considering only the physical design of a space. Albert
