Description
Christopher Alexander's masterwork, the result of 27 years of research, considers three vital perspectives: a scientific perspective; a perspective based on beauty and grace; a commonsense perspective based on our intuitions and everyday life. This volume describes the processes needed to generate living structure. The essence of these processes is that they generate building form, dynamically, step by step according to specific generative sequences.
