    • Although considered by many a flawed model for participation in architecture including Ratti, who claimed that the lack of a mechanism to prevent apathy was its main problem , Alexander s practical approach to the use of some of his patterns defined in A Pattern Language is a brilliant micro revolution to the way a project is dealt with it s users Empowered individuals holding the key for transformation in a time where no internet, apps or any high tech mechanism could be employed is fascinating [...]


    • Just finished re reading this book Did not compare the drawings in the book with a current map of university campus today last timeNow I did bit t0Ka0ZIt s amazing how a book written in 1973 have predicted the way a campus of the University of Oregon will expand in the next 30 years.How they did it six simple principles were introduced in 70s and used instead of the master plan 1 Organic order2 Participation3 Piecemeal growth4 Patterns see previous Alexander s book 5 Diagnosis6 Coordination


    • The best book I ve ever read on the master planning process for the University of Oregon, bar none No, seriously, it s an interesting case for making small organic plans rooted in real needs on the ground vs huge splashy projects Slow evolution punctuated equilibrium in town or university development It explains how campus architecture can create both dead zones and lively, social places.
