XII. Cohousing Compilation Within the neighborhood of intentional communities, cohousing is the new kid on the block, imported to North America from Denmark in the late 1980s. There are now more than 140 cohousing groups built in the US, with many more on the drawing boards. Cohousing is a specific design that features concentrated small-footprint houses with a centrally located common house; the housing faces inward with parking on the perimeter. The neighborhood is democratically controlled by residents, and tends to have strong environmental and energy-conserving features. Over cohousing's first quarter century here, a lot has been learned about what's vibrant and what's clunky. The 16 articles in the Cohousing collection lay out both the joys and the warts; the trends and the mends. This Digital Issue on Cohousing includes the following articles: 1. The Face of Cohousing in 2005: Growing, Green, and Silver by Raines Cohen and Betsy Morris, #127 2. Joining a Cohousing Community: Risks and Rewards by Stephen Gold, #127 3.
