The Radical Technology of Christopher Alexander - Metropolis Magazine

The Radical Technology of Christopher Alexander - Metropolis Magazine | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

Chances are, you have heard of Christopher Alexander because of his most famous book on architecture, A Pattern Language. 

 

Alexander, the mathematician, was always concerned with the processes by which parts transform into wholes.

Brilliant stuff. AC
