Architectural Models

Cada forma de vida y las necesidades concretas de los usuarios determinan de entre los modelos arquitectónicos posibles un proyecto único y específico.
Hay cohousing urbanos y rurales, en edificios nuevos o en rehabilitados. Las casas pueden ser de tipo unifamiliar, adosado o en bloque y los espacios comunes estar agrupados o repartidos.
¿Qué modelo es mejor? El que se corresponda con la forma de vida y con el tipo de relaciones sociales y medioambientales que hayamos decido tener.
