Redefining our relationship
bewteen the economy and urban living structure

Co-living is the natural extension of our shared history as we are, after all, social animals. Today, the co-living movement seeks to formalise a concept that has been around for millennia. The human need for community and affiliation remains as crucial as ever. Through the dissertation, I dicussed the implications that the shift of economic paradigm has on the society and urban co-living community from the 19th century. I used the features that form the shift of economic paradigm as a prism to draw comparisons and analysis. Moreover, using this understanding to sketch out the consequence of possible speculation of the future co-living community regarding the various elements that go into the creation of co-living.
