Patterns in practice

2005-05-09 15:07:36.370833+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Ages ago, I said of the book A Pattern Language that:

The rules for towns seem to lead to a horribly static and structured culture, the houses all seem cozy, but perhaps confining, and the building methods seem to ignore some issues that I'd sure want resolved before I put tens if not hundreds of thousands into a house.

Over at Sociate there's a link and some background on a quick presentation on patterns in use around Christopher Alexander's house, which confirms my thoughts on the matter.

Soon, there will be a similiar expose on 'The Treehouse' aka 'Mimosa Estate's' aka Mike's Mess. Yesterday's addition: Handrails and a big door gong. Today: Lighting?
