Ruiu, Maria Laura (2014) Le Nuove forme di «vicinato intenzionale»: il cohousing in Italia e in Inghilterra. Doctoral Thesis.
The thesis aims to offer a better understanding of the reasons why Cohousing communities arise, how they work, the internal composition, the architectural schemes, the relationships with the "outside". Cohousing may be defined as "intentional communities" that satisfy the need of friendly relationships among neighbours. We argue that the physical layout is not per se able to create the sense of community, other requirements are needed (e.g. intentionality, availability of time to build relationship, individual characteristics, formal activities, size of the group and the site, internal governance, social and cultural homogeneity, length of the residence etc.)
