Collective Housing Case Studies in Asia
MYANMAR - Pan Thazin - 2013
This little housing project for 30 poor families of squatters and room-renters, in Yangon's North Okkalapa Township, was the second to be built by women savings group members, with support from Women for the World.
THAILAND - Koh Mook - 2008
This case study describes the collective housing project designed and built by 94 landless fisher folk families on Koh Mook Island, after the 2004 Asian tsunami destroyed many of their houses.
THAILAND - Poo Poh - 2007
This project, in which 112 families from three squatter areas in the southern Thai city of Pattani came together, formed a housing cooperative, found land to buy nearby and designed and built a new community for themselves, with support from CODI's Baan Mankong program and a team of young community architects.
VIETNAM - Block 6A Cua Nam Ward - 2010
This on-site reblocking and reconstruction of a small community at Block 6A, in Vinh City's Cua Nam Ward, showed everyone in Vietnam a new way to revitalize the country's big stock of run-down collective housing, without evicting anyone.
