Descrizione prodotto


A Pattern Language by Chris Alexander changed the way I think about the way space is organised in a room, a house, a street and a town ... I keep giving it away to people who feel their homes don't quite work in the way they want them to. Every architect, estage agent and MP should read it. (James Runcie, Daily Mail)

5.0 su 5 stelle One of the Most Unique Books I've Ever Encountered 12 agosto 2015
Di JLJ - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book is insightful and fun to read. It is also a book that is easy to pick up and read a bit, and put it
down and come back later to pick up where you left off, because it is broken into many very short chapters,
each of which contain a key idea. It's hard to describe this book, because it is so unique in its approach
to telling the reader "how things ought to be" concerning everything from civil planning and city layout,
to floor-plans, to architectural design, to furnishing. The author is very opinionated and does not shy away
from boldly telling you what is wrong with the physical constructs of our urban, suburban, and rural areas,
and how all of that should be properly done in his imagined ideal world.

In some ways, this book is like reading the professional diary of your crazy uncle who is constantly ranting
about what's wrong with the world, and how he thinks it should be set right. However, after reading it for
a while, you get the impression that the author is not really crazy, so much as he is a brilliant eccentric
whose experience and understanding is based on an extremely broad appreciation of how human beings choose
to craft their surroundings, and how we get it right, and how we get it wrong, and why.

Be forewarned... you are not going to agree with everything the author says.
I don't agree, for example, with his outlandish claim that living in a home that is more than four stories
about the ground will eventually make you crazy, because I have loved living on the top floor of my
high-rise condo for the past ten years. I also don't agree with his idea that all kitchen cabinets should
be open shelves with no doors, because the doors just get in the way, hide what is contained therein,
and are essential useless. I must admit, however, that I love reading the author's insights on things
with which I disagree with him, and I have to admit that even on such issues... he's got good points!
Many times I find myself saying "Almost, thou persuadest me."

To be fair, I actually do agree with the author's views regarding the vast majority of his observations,
as they are all just good common-sense approaches, and I must admit they often leave me thinking
"Yes, that's such a beautifully simple truth... why don't we always build it that way, or do it that way?"

This book gives you the benefit of the sage wisdom of an author who is genuinely worth reading
and considering. Even though this book is decades-old, most of its observations are timeless.
It's so hard to classify the book. Is it a Western approach to Feng Shui ... without all the questionable
Eastern Spiritualism, and more of practical philosophy on how to best craft your environment?
Or is it better described as foundational reading for everyone from a City Planner, to an Architect,
to anyone building a house, to anyone one looking to make their home a more pleasant place?

However you choose to classify it... this book is a unique, delightful treatise on how things should
ideally be in order for human beings to be more comfortable, productive, and happy in their surroundings.

5.0 su 5 stelle What a great book! 14 luglio 2014

I can't put into words what an excellent book I think this is -- oh wait, just did. Now what do I do? Should I continue? Well, if you really think so...

C.Alexander and company did a fabulous job putting together a very interesting and well-researched book, with neat little sketches and very humanistic approaches to things. I often find many architects' work and interviews to be artistically-focused, they having arrived at their inspiration through personal, creative impulses. What I find so refreshing about this book that I think is so rare is the psychological, humanist dynamic that pervades it. You can't get around it. This book is much more about building healthy and happy communities than about anything else, in my opinion. Go out and get it, do yourself that favor.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Reference Book 1 marzo 2014
Di DM3147 - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Bought this as a gift for a friend. Since its original publication, I have purchased numerous copies as gifts and to have in multiple locations for reference. Written in a series of short 1-2 page chapters, the book goes through an array of critical "place making" criteria based on human behavior. As an architect/urban designer, it is one of my top 5 reference books when thinking through an new project. Although not a book intended to be read cover to cover, some of his other publications are written in a way to show how these "place making" elements can be combined to create a livable human habitat.

4.0 su 5 stelle Great Informative Book 25 settembre 2013
Di Noir - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I am an architecture student and I purchased this book for a weekly project we had. My class refers to this book as the architecture bible (because of the small text and thickness of the book, approx. 1150pgs). It is extremely helpful and informative. The only thing I would have to say was a disappointment was the sacristy of images and photographs to enhance the understanding of each concept or point they were making throughout the book. There was only about one photo or in some cases no photo for each topic, and it would have helped to have more for certain topics to really understand the point that was being made. Overall, the photos aren't a huge deal, so don't let that stop you for purchasing this book.

Here is an example of one of the chapters and how it is laid out:

4.0 su 5 stelle Most Intriguing 8 giugno 2014
Di S. S. Knight - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I like books that shake me up and make me think about new ideas or tip my ideas on their heads. This is that book. Made me think about things I had never thought about and relationships between ideas that changed my thinking totally. I am a teacher and I try to encourage my students to really think and stretch their minds. I want them to expand their minds and to find new and creative ways of interpreting information. I have not read all of this book but every time I dive in to the material, I am amused, challenged and my brain is tickled.
