Collective Building and Living Voecklabruck A socially and politically fundamental rethinking of our current housing culture seems to be impossible to avoid, since the disintegration of institutions such as church, state, or traditional ^large family constellations are consequently impacting our community, economically as well as on a social level. The dream of a “single family household amidst greenery” gained popularity in the mid 20th century seizing and therefore squandering lands originally meant for agricultural use, furthermore increasing costs for infrastructure and energy, thus not offering a sustainable model for our impending future. Over the course of a lifetime there are changes due to family, relationships, and incomes, which all contribute to the requirements of what is colloquially known as “home”. The existent housing market does not cover the needs or expectations for our highly individual living constellations and ever changing demands. Collective Building and Living Voecklabruck investigates realized collective building projects, devising new innovative housing typologies for prospective cohabitation regarding provincial cities and towns.
