The great volume of Christopher Alexander is a basic approach in architectural design theory. As it was and is still separate from the main streamlines of architectural theory it will retain its validity for a long period.

I am a student of Landscape Architecture and find this text very helpful. It has compiled tons of research and knowledge about patterns found in cities, back yards, children's playgournds, farm houses . . . you name it it's probably in there. Each section is concise and easily understood with a descriptive diagram. It is very useful and just plain interesting.

This book is an architect's "bible" ... with complete attention to the natural order as it supports humankind's building and organization efforts, big and small, from beautiful town layouts that provide sane, smooth, and supportive living ... to the details of pathway patterns within a home for people and the sun. The range of topics is wonderful ... a fascinating learning tool.
