Session 3 Adding Affordabilities – case studies in affordable cohousing with Charles Durrett For this session, cohousing Architect Charles Durrett, will dive into several of his past projects including those in Vancouver, Eugene, Anchorage and some of the 18 others outlined in detail in his new book, Community-Enhanced Design: Cohousing and Other High Functioning Neighborhoods. Creating a viable and affordable cohousing neighborhood encompasses many factors such as education and awareness, development and process, finance and legal to affordable materials, constructability and sustainable energy. Charles will be pulling the key information from these case studies to summarize the ways in which designing a neighborhood can be a clear and predictable process. Including Auxiliary Rental Units in Cohousing – Nyland’s experience with Robert Bruegel One possible approach to improving the affordability of cohousing is to include auxiliary rental units as part of the homes. Nyland – located just east of Boulder, Co – has nearly 30 yrs experience with this. The session will share a Nyland founder’s experience, its impact on affordability, and suggestions for newly forming communities, based on this experience. Recognizing and Responding to Classism in Communities with Matt Stannard Material inequality is a primordial source of oppression. Classism is a set of behaviors, attitudes, and cultural characteristics that normalize material inequality. Classism undermines efforts to build successful intentional communities, cohousing communities, and cooperative organizations. This program will do the following: 1. Frame socioeconomic insecurity as a source of social differentiation and personal trauma. 2. Utilize anecdotes from intentional community experiences to illustrate unintentional and intentional classism; provide important metrics, statistics, and empirical data on socioeconomic insecurity and class. 3. Discuss why some attempted solutions to classism fail and what effective responses to classism do. Working affordably with Professionals and the Built Environment with Kristen Uitto & Stephen Eckert This presentation will focus on ways to work effectively with design professionals to avoid added cost. It will also identify ways to affordably design units from a space planning aspect to the selection of materials. We will also touch on partnerships that can help build in affordability. Finally it will ask the question, what elements of the process are anti-affordable? We look forward to seeing you there!
