Auckland Libraries: Cohousing for life

Cohousing for life

Tuesday 18 August 6pm to 7.30pm Free

Join us for an evening with architect Robin Allison for the launch of her new book 'Cohousing for life: a practical and personal story of Earthsong Eco-Neighbourhood'.

Robin Allison is the initiator and project coordinator of Earthsong Eco-Neighbourhood, the award-winning 32-home cohousing neighbourhood in Rānui. Earthsong demonstrates leading-edge sustainable design with intensive community involvement and was a finalist in 2009 in both the World Habitat Awards and UN Habitat Awards. Robin’s book is a very personal story of the collective endeavour of developing Earthsong. It also describes the key elements and structures that allowed a diverse group to create a large, innovative housing development. 

Refreshments will be served from 6 p.m. Books will be available for purchase on the night, courtesy of The Women's Bookshop.
