Since 2008, there has been a renewed search for alternative forms of housing production that can move beyond speculative interests and are based instead on models of co-ownership, co-production, and co-management. Hence the concept of the cooperative has experienced a true renaissance in recent years. This book explores how cooperative housing construction and forms of self-determined building production might offer effective solutions to the global housing crisis, moving us closer to a more equitable and sustainable future through systematic change. With case studies from Germany, Switzerland, Brazil, Uruguay, Ethiopia, and China, as well as a glossary of important terms.

With texts by Rainer Hehl, Patrícia Ventura, Sascha Delz, Kavita Kulkarni, Bisrat Woldeyessus, Michael Pfister, Juan Du, Paula Constante, Irina Davidovici, Anna Heilgemeir.
