Living in a community is getting increasing attention. In the current period of multiple crises including the housing crisis, the collaborative housing form is considered an important and attractive alternative for many people. People seem to wish more togetherness in their lives, in combination with affordable and sustainable housing.

Project Together aims to start a movement towards more collaborative living. For this project, Eric Creemers and Ron Blom created a series of short films that inspire the wide range of shapes collaborative living can take. Project Together was initiated by the Faculty of Architecture of the TU Delft and is a collaboration with Platform31, Inbo, Gemeente Delft and Gemeente Den Haag. For more information see Project Together.
These films were made possible by TU Delft, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten, Gemeente Rotterdam, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Stichting Bevordering van Volkskracht and Jurriaanse Stichting.
