As a student in CS Architecture, I had time to re-think the built environment on a human scale. From the beginning of the school year, I had various opportunities to develop my idea through project-based courses handling current issues of the surrounding environment. Especially socially responsible housing was a topic that I had wished to study for many years even before I came to Finland. Luckily Aalto University allowed me the freedom to jump into this topic. At the moment, I am leading a cohousing project, which developed from a studio course and my thesis. Most importantly, now I have friends and people from different fields of study who have various experiences for the project.
