Shared Buildings Research into the potential for developing large, jointly owned, private buildings

Research into the potential for developing large, jointly owned, private buildings

 The transformation of private, co-owned properties (which represent 75% of all buildings in Paris) represents an immense opportunity for creating and developing a shared, sustainable city.
Our study focuses specifically on the large, private residences built in the postwar era. These buildings possess qualities that merit a reappraisal in light of the contemporary challenges facing the development of cities today: high density, high-quality, extensive outdoor spaces, and a repetitive, essential structure.

Our study envisions the transformation of these buildings as a relevant means of addressing the need to share ground, resources, and usages.

We propose renewing a prospective study of these residences to illustrate and communicate their evolutionary potential. For example, how can the rooftops of these buildings be used? How can we reimagine participative governance and create new services? How can we develop new modes of habitation? This represents the starting point for the inquiry that Shared Buildings will conduct.
