Christopher Alexander's A Pattern Language

Hans de Zwart, Technology as a Solution…, Jun 15, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Hans de Zwart's summary of Christopher Alexander's A Pattern Language comes at a good time. It will be useful ahead during the 'syntax' section of the Critical Literacies course as we look at patterns. "Written in 1977 it is clear that this is a very 'seventies' book. The belief in what we in The Netherlands would call 'De maakbaarheid van de samenleving' (the ability to create/design/mold society) is very high. It was interesting to reflect on where I grew up and how much of that place was designed according to the same kind of thinking and ideals."
