Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of the most important contemporary books about the art of design, what it is, and how to go about it.”Industrial Design

“Christopher Alexander has outlined an ambitious proposal that could revolutionize the approach to architectural design… His method cannot help but become ‘a very powerful tool indeed’ for those who would deal with projects of the complex present and the growing complexity of the future.”Progressive Architecture

“The success or failure of the designed environment will remain, as always, a human responsibility… Alexander’s assertions are not only challenging and stimulating but informative.”American Institute of Architects Journal

“An important book for the urban designer and planner…stimulating and certainly controversial… It may one day prove to be a landmark in design methodology.”Journal of the American Institute of Planners

Came with a worn out cover page. Pages are made of cheapest available brown paper. Compared to other books in the same price range quality is pretty low.
