Christopher Alexander’s A Pattern Language
Last year, we heard a little about Christopher Alexander’s A Pattern Language from Meditation: On Patterns. We wanted to bring it up again here since it’s such a good resource for anyone wanting to make sense of their surroundings…
A Pattern Language touches on seemingly simple aspects of design that everyone can consider and create in their own home. These points range from natural light to arrangement of furnishings; from heating and cooling to outdoor space and plantings. It’s all covered in the book and reading A Pattern Language has a soothing effect on the reader. It makes you slow down and contemplate even the smallest details of your home.
