Christopher Alexander Books

Christopher Alexander has written (another) interesting series of books on architecture and design. I came across these in my fine local bookstore, Third Place Books of Lake Forest Park, Washington, USA. I could not help laying them out in an array.


I have just started Stephen Wolframs "A New Kind of Science". These books by Alexander seem a very good complement.


The Nature of Order series

The Phenomenon of Life: The Nature of Order, Book 1

The Process of Creating Life: The Nature of Order, Book 2

A Vision of a Living World: The Nature of Order, Book 3

The Luminous Ground: The Nature of Order, Book 4


Center for Environmental Structure Series

The Oregon Experiment

The Production of Houses

A New Theory of Urban Design

A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction

The Timeless Way of Building
