The writings of Christopher Alexander form a great part of our studio philosophy. The Nature of Order, Alexander’s seminal essay on the art of building and the nature of the universe, is a constant source of inspiration and guidance in our search for meaning and beauty.
Throughout this site, we quote Alexander and reflect on his writings, ideas, and philosophy. The implications of his Fifteen Fundamental Properties are of vital importance to our every design effort. His principles of strong centers and unfolding wholeness are cornerstones of our studio consciousness and character, and at best, of our work.
