While a near consensus has developed in the US that there is a housing affordability crisis, it has done so while seemingly circumventing a debate about who deserves housing. This project, Real Estate for Radicals is case study-based research on affordable community-owned housing — co-ops, community land trusts, communes, and squats and their potential to advance housing as a human right. By studying 5 communities and their residents, Graves will consider the extent to which these urban housing communities advance the principles of equality, liberation, and justice for the residents and the larger community. Graves profiles the history, and lived experiences of residents and explore whether community-owned housing could be a viable third way for those seeking a pause or even a break from market-driven real estate.
