Pattern Language

Christopher Alexander is Professor in the Graduate School and Emeritus Professor of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. Click here for more bio . . .

While he is no Christian, Alexander's ideas captivate: he has found the architectural means to support and foster communal life. And he did it (as if he were a SAILOR) by observing which existing architectural patterns foster communal life and which fail.

His book A Pattern Language delights; from town to neighborhood to house to room, his observations ring true. And I just found his website! Sign up and pay a small fee to access this site or get many of the ideas here for free, at his sister site.

Just sample what he has to say about Establishing a Main Center.
