Furthermore, the history of collective housing in Sweden can be seen in the light of both comprehensive as well as specific theories dealing with the “collective”. David Harvey’s writings on urban commons, as well as the fundamental ideas of smaller utopian societies, developed by Fourier are thus used in order to analyse my case and bring new discoveries to the surface.
