There are various forms of collective housing that propose and rehearse many different forms of sharing functions, spaces and other "things". Social and public housing usually encourage one or other form of sharing in search of affordability. Experiences of cooperative building often include shared facilities and spaces, some times shared activities. Student housing, women dormitories, workers dormitories, elderly homes, asylum homes, camps, monasteries, schools and other situations and forms of habitation offer multiple examples of diverse degrees and ways of sharing "things" through and in architecture. Multi-family dwelling, co-housing and many self-built initiatives and developments involve various degrees of shared and common spaces, often aiming at encouraging encounter, social exchange and collaboration.
