Alexander, Christopher : The Battle for the Life and Beauty of the Earth

A Struggle between Two World-Systems

Using the example of building the Eishin Campus in Japan, this book demonstrates the successful application of Christopher Alexander's principles and production methods to large-scale building projects and communities. It establishes the foundations of a new system of creation and production that includes the best of current building practices. It invites us, collectively and individually, to contribute to an entirely new built landscape, embracing creation, art, craft, technology, ecology, and science - all that we call architecture.
