The fourth in a series of housing symposia, Domestic Affairs #4 Living Together confronts the opportunities and challenges of living together. From Alternate politics to co-living and new forms of sharing this symposium will interrogate the legacy of communal life in San Francisco and its possibilities to create social and economic equity and empowerment.

Communal Histories will investigate history of communal living, intentional communities, and their interiors. Commune as Practice will discuss communal living today as a reflection of how these communities see themselves and their work. Commune as Praxis will uncover research and design practices that are working to bridge the history and theory of communes.

Domestic Affairs is a design-research project undertaken by The Urban Works Agency at CCA that is examining new models of housing, density, and affordability in San Francisco through design.
