James Whetter discusses cooperative housing on Radio New Zealand
Will a lack of affordable housing be the catalyst for Auckland to seriously consider large-scale cooperative housing projects?
Jasmax Principal James Whetter thinks the time is ripe for a change in mindset towards collaborative housing and away from the view of housing as wealth generation. He has toured several projects in Berlin, Zurich and Vienna to find out how large-scale projects can work and how they benefit residents.
James joined Kathryn Ryan on RNZ's Nine to Noon to discuss whether these principles could be applied in Aotearoa New Zealand.
