The "single family dwelling" has produced a stressful lifestyle with rent absorbing the majority of our income. The ideas of Co-housing may one day bring us to the point of designing, planning and building a Utopian Society with little or no need for money once the buildings are completed. We found a few designs on the internet that provide evidence that the great minds of the earth are re-thinking the future of city planning. What if each small building was self-sustaining, non-polluting, works of wisdom that employed each individual right where they live? We could eliminate the need for long, stressful, polluting commutes and replace it with energy elevating community inter-dependence instead of independence.
Like the pioneers that established the original America and the higher tech version we know today soon followed, these visionaries are carving out a simplified path for more complex designs to follow.
