New paper by Marie Horňáková and Jana Jíchová was recently published in Journal of Housing and the Built Environment. Entitled Deciding where to live: case study of cohousing-inspired residential project in Prague, the piece focuses on the process of selecting a new place of residence located in the inner city of Prague. Apart from residential decision-making, the authors also highlight the emergence of reurbanisation in Czechia and discuss some implications of the cohousing-inspired project on urban planning.
