Only after Andrew left, Terri informed us that Andrew was a former Australia Housing Minister ! phew, we actually presented our proposal to a former ministeR!? wow wow wow. :)

Cohousing Forum by Hans Tilstra and Louis Sauer

Team in charge of Frankston Cohousing with their client

My tutor on the left, Lou talking to my client from Hastings.

By the way, co-housing is actually a collaborative housing which the residents take part in the designing process and also in the operation of their neighbourhood.

and as for me, i'm designing a co-housing for the old folks.
i'm dealing with old clients, it's new to me and i cant wait for my final design.

here i am,
pulling an all nighter
getting my presentation ready in 24 hours time.
welcome sara, to a new semester of architecture.

oh well.
my design studio is called CO HOUSING, and my tutor is an invited American architect,
and he has taught in Yale and few other american unis! cool.

i'll talk about what 'co-housing' is all about later.

i went down to the site in east brunswick early this morning, weather was pretty gloomy. yikes.
