Branner 2018-2019: Matthew Palmquest - Living Together On Monasteries & the New Domestic Landscape

Monasteries have existed as a longstanding typology of collective architecture that is owned, worked, repaired, and lived in communally. With the rise of the sharing economy and the shift in patterns of ownership amongst young professionals, questions about how future domestic landscapes will take shape are surging. As such, this research project surveys a variety of monastic structures and communities by asking to what extent architecture affects collective life.
