Together! The New Architecture of the Collective presents an overview of contemporary collective housing projects from contexts as different as Europe, Asia, and the United States. The exhibition catalog traces the history of this recent collective turn in housing back to the utopian residential developments of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and the first radical housing cooperative projects of the 1920s. It tells the story of the various protest movements against housing shortages and real estate speculation in many urban centers since the 1960s. A series of visual essays by photographer Daniel Burchard gives the reader an introduction to the everyday domestic life of eight contemporary housing projects in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Japan.

Critical essays by Andreas Hofer, Ethel Baraona Pohl, Anna Puigjaner, Robert Temel, Yuma Shinohara, and the editors of this book analyze the search for the collective as the defining force in the development of housing from the beginnings of modernism until today.
