THE FUTURE OF COHABITATION • In the lead-up to each issue, Frame challenges emerging designers to answer a topical question with a future-forward concept. As urban areas grow outwards and upwards, the cost of inner-city living becomes equally inflated. In order to stay central while avoiding social isolation, various groups of people are opting to share the load. Today that means everything from self-sufficient communes to co-housing models, but how will cohabitation look in the future? In line with this issue’s living-themed Frame Lab (see p. 131), we asked five makers to come up with possible solutions.
