Our research explores shared living spaces and flat-sharing projects, alternative community hubs for newcomers and locals to meet and alternative community structures taking place across several European countries including in Denmark, Germany, Italy.

In these new spaces, it becomes possible to invent a new language where newcomers are not confined to simply the legal and procedural language of non-citizens, refugees and/or outsiders but as equal members of the space and community being built. 

Many of these projects are designed with the aim of questioning ideas around living space, what it means to live together, and the sharing of space with newcomers.
