How does architectural design effect the viability of a community? Find out at this presentation featuring cohousing architect Chuck Durrett, hosted by Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).


Chuck will discuss why the locations and proximity of structures (homes and common areas) are an important consideration when creating a neighborhood. Community-led design, environmental implications, and social implications will be discussed and case studies will be presented.

If you are considering creating an intentional community, if you’re interested in learning about cohousing to enhance your professional portfolio, or if you are simply curious about how neighborhood design works, you should come to this talk!

Registration is required and can be done by clicking on the link below. The presentation is listed under Arts and Humanities and is #Club806.

McCamant & Durrett Architects | The Cohousing Company has more experience planning, organizing, and designing cohousing communities than anyone.
