Founder and CEO of BauBau Claire Coletti works towards fostering neighborhood connections through architecture. As an undergraduate at Northeastern Claire realized the potential for cooperative housing in America, especially her home city of Boston, and how it can be used as an alternative model for equitable ownership.

Her startup BauBau emerged as an idea while she was studying in Berlin and working on a “baugruppen” building; this project required making a home for a diverse neighborhood of people consisting of young German families, the elderly and alone, Syrian refugees, and local students.

Claire is currently her master’s degree in Architecture.
