Co-housing: building community in shared space


Richard Lucas of TEDx Kazimierz in Krakow, Poland has joined our Advisory Board (thank you Richard!). He has shared this excellent TED video from 2017, featuring Grace Kim talking about co-housing, an innovative way of building community within shared space.  Richard writes:

“Greetings from Krakow, Poland – This is my first post. I was sharing information about this great project with my TED Circle this evening. with guests from Canada , Germany, Israel, India, Poland, Romania and the USA.  We were discussing Kim Grace’s thought provoking TED talk on co-housing which is a different approach to designing and living with community as a high priority. The links with the manifesto Mark drafted are obvious.”

About the talk: Loneliness doesn’t always stem from being alone. For architect Grace Kim, loneliness is a function of how socially connected we feel to the people around us — and it’s often the result of the homes we live in. She shares an age-old antidote to isolation: cohousing, a way of living where people choose to share space with their neighbors, get to know them, and look after them. Rethink your home and how you live in it with this eye-opening talk.
