Updates from the Project and the Topic 
The FOL group received funding from the Robert Bosch Foundation for idea development between September 2017 and April 2018. This resulted in an indepth study. 
As a CITYMAKERS platform we are curious to learn how the project continues and will share updates here; we will also explore the topic through further interviews. 
Recommendations by CITYMAKERS Future of Living - Focus Group
FOL is exploring alternative ways of living, working and sharing in Chinese cities. The project discusses and conceptualizes a novel resident-centered building type in China – a collective architectural space based on common visions of sharing time and space, built and inhabited by collective, private clients.
