Shared Spaces Project


Morphing mainstream models of development into unique physical and legal spaces where people and organizations can come together; providing not only lodging for individuals, but also facilities for hosting events and the operation of group projects. The intent is to create a replicable prototype of green development which integrates:

  • Democratic legal infrastructures engaging members with a share of private realestate as well as access to common grounds and resources. Contracts detail membership responsibilities and benefits.

  • Accommodations for incorporating other complimentary organizations via a flexible yet clear legal framework for collaboration. (IE Space is leased to separate groups interested in anything from running an event center, to operating a recording studio, farming organic produce, hosting martial art retreats etc….)

  • Engaging skills and resources towards attaining shared goals.
