The Timeless Way of Building

The book offers a radically new approach to architecture and construction, answering the question of what fills architecture with life.

The Timeless Way of Building is one of the most significant books of the twentieth century, which influenced the development of design, engineering, architecture and computer science. The author presents a new theory of architecture, building, and planning which has at its core that age-old process by which the people of a society have always pulled the order of their world from their own being—it forms, in essence, the basis for a new traditional post-industrial architecture, created by the people, not by architects.

“I believe this to be perhaps the most important book on architectural design published this century. Every library, every school, every environmental action group, every architect, and every first-year student should have a copy” — Tony Ward, Architect and Designer.

About the author:
Christopher Alexander is Professor Emeritus of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. Alexander has designed and built more than two hundred buildings on five continents: many of these buildings lay the groundwork of a new form of architecture, which looks far into the future, yet has roots in ancient traditions.
