Livability News & Notes
Housing for Neurodiverse Adults
— Cohome, a New Jersey nonprofit, has created a housing model where neurotypical residents and people with disabilities live alongside one another.
Housing for Artists and Others

The apartment complex has several art studios onsite as well as a sound room and a ventilated spray paint booth.
Housing for All in Need of Housing
— An architect explains why modular architecture (think Lego boxes that plug in side-by-side and top-to-bottom) is a globally scalable model for designing and delivering high-quality affordable and sustainable homes.
