A Pattern Language

Green housing & structures book.

A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction is a 1977 book on architecture, urban design, and community livability

The book first introduced the concept of people designing buildings for themselves, and guaranteeing the comfort and functionality of the buildings they designed, because the elements of the language are "patterns", elements which are a collective memory of things which work in our surroundings.
