Delivering cohousing for a carbon and resource constrained world, what role for community groups, what role for the state

Academic Profile

Bruno Friedel is researching the cohousing model as one which could have potential benefits in environmental sustainability and housing affordability. The experience of urban cohousing groups in their attempts to access land and their interactions with government policy will be compared in case studies from three countries: the UK, Australia and Germany.

He has previously worked at the urban research institute LSE Cities and as a housing adviser to the Victorian State Government. Recently he worked in Thailand and Cambodia on policy studies in his field. He holds an MA in Sustainable Cities from King's College, London, and a BA (Honours) in political science from the University of Melbourne.
