dc.description.abstract "Cohousing may well become the most significant new form of housing in the 1990s. The conditions from which cohousing arises are widespread: declining household size, social isolation, the demise of the extended family, changing gender roles, and problems of social justice and resource consumption. None of these conditions is just a passing phase and, while the ideology of the detached single-family house will persist, cohousing is a high quality and highly sustainable alternative." (Marcus and Dovey 1991). vskip9pt This practicum explores "Cohousing" as an alternative housing typology that seeks to re-establish community in contemporary residential environments. In so doing, it will be hypothesized that we can combat some of the more pressing social and physical problems that plague urban environments today. The practicum includes the development of a comprehensive proposal for a cohousing community in the Core Area of Winnipeg, Manitoba. en_US
