Experimental dwelling forms—CoHousing Cultures—are entering the mainstream. But to what extent are they accessible and affordable for all, including people with more or less money, with or without refugee experience, with or without disabilities? Collaborative, social housing initiatives are already developing such diversifying, sustainable neighborhoods, and are not only supported by civil society, but also increasingly by apartment providers such as cooperatives.

The book and the exhibition contain critical reviews of model projects representing a colorful, European movement, complemented with photos and drawings. Short texts argue how political and financial conditions can be improved to better realize collaborative housing. Finally, a range of voices offer unconventional and promising strategies.
The EXPERIMENTDAYS is an annual event for CoHousing and CoLiving projects, including a diversity of self-organized and community-oriented housing. The EXPERIMENTDAYS have been organized every year since 2003 by id22 to offer a place to learn about and make connections with cooperative and collaborative housing. The Housing Project Market brings together currently emerging housing initiatives and complements this with discussions, workshops, and tours.

The production and maintenance of affordable housing as well as alternative projects in Berlin is becoming more difficult as neighborhoods are segregating and gentrifying, with traditional structures being eroded by systems of investment and profit. Rents and real estate prices are increasing dramatically. At the intersections between urban development and housing, private interests are becoming more and more politicized, influencing personal living arrangements, social life and urban culture. The aim of the EXPERIMENTDAYS is to make connections and strengthen networks, and to increase attention for the art of community-oriented housing and living.
