Regarding communal housing and re-examining the american dream, SANAA's Moriyama houses by Japanese architect, Ryue Nishizawain is the best example I've seen.
"The Moriyama House is a flexible-format of minimalist steel prefab house for Yasuo Moriyama, a perfect example of a home designed like a community while connecting the inside and outside.
Located in the suburbs of Tokyo, this modern architectural concept presents a multi-building residence with ten separate buildings, ranging from 1 to 3 stories high, where every room is a building by itself - even owner Moriyama's bathroom is a separate building. The buildings are all prefabricated houses, which use steel plating to make the walls as thin as possible, in order to maximize the interior space."
