You can use this book to design a house for yourself with your family; you can use it to work with your neighbors to improve your town and neighborhood; you can use it to design an office, or a workshop, or a public building. And you can use it to guide you in the actual process of construction. After a ten-year silence, Christopher Alexander and his colleagues at the Center for Environmental Structure are now publishing a major statement in the form of three books which will, in their words, "lay the basis for an entirely new approach to architecture, building and planning, which will we hope replace existing ideas and practices entirely." The three books are The Timeless Way of Building, The Oregon Experiment, and this book, A Pattern Language. At the core of these books is the idea that people should design for themselves their own houses, streets, and communities. This idea may be radical (it implies a radical transformation of the architectural profession) but it comes simply from the observation that most of the wonderful places of the world were not made by architects but by the people. At the core of the books, too, is the point that in designing their environments people always rely on certain "languages," which, like the languages we speak, allow them to articulate and communicate an infinite variety of designs within a forma system which gives them coherence. This book provides a language of this kind. It will enable a person to make a design for almost any kind of building, or any part of the built environment. "Patterns," the units of this language, are answers to design problems (How high should a window sill be? How many stories should a building have? How much space in a neighborhood should be devoted to grass and trees?). More than 250 of the patterns in this pattern language are given: each consists of a problem statement, a discussion of the problem with an illustration, and a solution. As the authors say in their introduction, many of the patterns are archetypal, so deeply rooted in the nature of things that it seemly likely that they will be a part of human nature, and human action, as much in five hundred years as they are today.

The Linz Café is the fifth and latest book in a series which includes The Timeless Way of Building, A Pattern Language, The Oregon Experiment, and The Production of Houses[.] Here for the first time, Christopher Alexander describes a single building, commissioned by the organizers of the 1980 summer exposition "Forum Design" in Linz, Austria, with the explicit intention of allowing him to express his ideas, concepts, feelings, and philosophy, in a single building. "I thought at once that people would be tired after walking so much in the exhibit," Alexander writes, "and that what was needed most of all was a beautiful place to sit down, be comfortable, have a cup of coffee or a beer, enjoy the beauty of the Danube." The book describes the process of its design and the feelings which prompted it. Reflecting ideas presented in his earlier books and offering tantalizing glimpses of work now in progress, it deals with the ultimate spiritual reality of building. Among other things, there are first sketches of ideas, so far not published elsewhere, of Alexander's theory of color, his love of ornament, and illustrations of the hand-painted flowers with which he covered the inside of the café in the last days before its opening. --From dust jacket.

As an innovative thinker about building and planning, Christopher Alexander has attracted a devoted following. His seminal books--The Timeless Way of Building, A Pattern Language, and The Oregon Experiment--defined a radical and fundamently new process of environmental design. Alexander now gives us the latest book in his series--a book that puts his theories to the test and shows what sort of production system can create the kind of environment he has envisioned. The Production of Houses centers around a group of buildings which Alexander and his associates built in 1976 in northern Mexico. Each house is different and the book explains how each family helped to lay out and construct its own home according to the family's own needs and in the framework of the pattern language. Numerous diagrams and tables as well as a variety of anecdotes make the day-today process clear. The Mexican project, however, is only the starting point for a comprehensive theory of housing production. The Production of Houses describes seven principles which apply to any system of production in any part of the world for housing of any cost in any climate or culture or at any density. In the last part of the book, "The Shift of Paradigm," Alexander describes, in detail, the devastating nature of the revolution in world view which is contained in his proposal for housing construction, and its overall implications for deep-seated cultural change.

The plans are drawn up, a site is chosen, foundations are dug: a building comes into being with the expectation that it will stay put and stay for ever. But a building is a capricious thing: it is inhabited and changed, and its existence is a tale of constant and curious transformation. In this radical reimagining of architectural history, Edward Hollis tells the stories of thirteen buildings, beginning with the 'once upon a time' when they first appeared, through the years of appropriation, ruin and renovation, and ending with a temporary 'ever after'. In spell-binding prose, Hollis follows his buildings through time and space to reveal the hidden histories of the Parthenon and the Alhambra, Gloucester Cathedral and Haghia Sofia, Sans Souci and Notre Dame de Paris, Malatesta's Tempio and Loreto, and explores landmarks of our own time, from Hulme's legendary crescents to the Berlin Wall and the fibre-glass theme parks of Las Vegas.

Unterricht und seine Gestaltung stehen in einem Spannungsverhältnis zwischen Theorie und Praxis. Wie kann diese Kluft zwischen Wissen und Handeln überbrückt werden? Als eine Möglichkeit werden in jüngster Zeit didaktische Entwurfsmuster diskutiert. Auf systematische Weise dokumentieren sie bewährte Lösungen für wiederkehrende Probleme bei der Gestaltung didaktischer Szenarien und machen so das implizite Wissen erfahrener Lehrender für Novizinnen und Novizen nutzbar. Von wem, wie und warum wurde der Muster-Ansatz aus der Architektur auf die Didaktik übertragen? Welche Problematik verbirgt sich in diesem gedanklichen Brückenschlag? Wie sehen didaktische Entwurfsmuster aus und worin bestehen ihre Stärken und Schwächen? Was sind die notwendigen Voraussetzungen dafür, dass didaktische Entwurfsmuster nutzbringend für die Unterrichtsgestaltung eingesetzt werden können? Diesen Fragen nähert sich Reinhard Bauer aus einer diskursanalytischen Perspektive mit dem Ziel, den von Christopher Alexander für die Architektur entwickelten Muster-Ansatz für die Didaktik zu öffnen und nutzbar zu machen. Reinhard Bauer promovierte 2014 an der Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt. Er lehrt und forscht am Institut für übergreifende Bildungsschwerpunkte (IBS) der Pädagogischen Hochschule Wien, wo er sich im Zentrum für Lerntechnologie und Innovation (ZLI) mit den Einsatzmöglichkeiten von digitalen Technologien, Medien und Werkzeugen für eine zeitgemäße und innovative (Hochschul-)Didaktik beschäftigt.
