The course runs through the stages of creating a co-housing community. Under the guidance of industry experts, the participants will undertake a series of tasks, including: the selection of the inhabitants group; co-design activities of the common spaces; negotiation of the governance rules; constitution of purchasing groups (for furniture, food, utilities and so on); realization of toolkits for the co-housing management; and eventually the assistance to the establishment of an association that will be able to sustain the community for everyday life. The course aims to provide a broad range of skills for a professional service designer, with a specific interest in the creation and management of co-housing, social and collaborative housing.
