In the first volume in this four volume masterwork, Alexander proposes a scientific view of the world in which all-space-matter has perceptible degrees of life and sets this understanding of order as an intellectual basis for a new architecture. With this view as a foundation, we can ask precise questions about what must be done to create more life in our world - whether in a room...a humble doorknob..a neighbourhood...or even in a vast region.
