The University of Miami, in partnership with AIA Miami, presents a discussion on residential co-ownership that has emerged over the last two decades in Germany. Developed by groups of individuals for a variety of motivations including affordability, higher ecological performance and meaningful social interaction, these architecturally distinguished multi-family buildings offer an alternative take on urban living. The evening focuses on the explanation of the development and design process by two experts from Berlin, and a discussion regarding opportunities for South Florida. Could this new type of co-housing become an alternative to a market dominated by the condo-tower and the single-family house?
