Customer Review

on 19 November 2006
Alexander builds a picture of the common connection elements that make a house, a building, a community and a city work. Going beyond trying to quantify or even causation in its narrower sense, he discovers for us how things fit together so we enjoy it and feel comfortable with it. Amazinly, he then uses this "language" as he goes on to give tangible examples, things that we can all relate to. In a way, he discovers elements of post-modern architecture and it challenges thoughts about form and function by insisting on talking about feelings. If you are studying the philosophy of complexity, please consider this book as part of your library.
