In this book, Christopher Alexander puts his theories to the test and shows what sort of production system can produce the environment he envisions. He provides a fascinating account of a group of houses in northern Mexico that he and his associates built according to his theories--examining each structure, showing how each was designed to meet the occupants' needs, and how each related to the framework of a pattern language. It is a concrete example of his ideas in action, revealing their vast potentional for advancing cultural change.
