Project description online

Social mix & co-operative living: residential building cooperatives between social demands and reality of planning.

Cooperatives have a long tradition in Germany and are known to create affordable housing under the aspects of co-determination and self-administration. For this reason, this model is often examined and evaluated positively at object level, on a scientific and practical level.

We turned the housing cooperatives as the driving force behind the neighborhood development and their contribution to the social mix to the focus of our project. For this, we examined housing cooperatives in Weimar, Gotha, Jena and Zurich. During our excursion in Zurich to the Hunziker Areal, we were able to identify problems which we analyzed and developed concepts that could be transferred to other cooperatives. We focused on the development of neighborhoods, the occupancy right in cooperatives, the integration of young people in a cooperative, and urban gardening.
