A pattern language : towns, buildings, construction by Christopher Alexander( Book )

33 editions published between 1968 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the core of the book is the point that in designing their environments people always rely on certain 'languages', which, like the languages we speak, allow them to articulate and communicate an infinite variety of designs within a formal system which gives them coherence. This book provides a language of this kind. It will enable a person to make a design for almost any kind of building, or any part of the built environment. 'Patterns', the units of this language, are answers to design problems (How high should a window sill be? How many stories should a building have? How much space in a neighborhood should be devoted to grass and trees?). More than 250 of the patterns in this pattern language are given: each consists of a problem statement, a discussion of a the problem with an illustration, sand a solution. As the authors say in their introduction, many of the patterns are archetypal, so deeply rooted in the nature of things that it seems likely that they will be a part of human nature, and human action, as much in five hundred years as they are today"--Jacket

Slaying the dragon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes racial and gender stereotyping of Asian women in U.S. motion pictures as well as other filmic media, with "Reloaded" updating the original documentary by noting the effects of globalization and a changing population within the past 25 years. Includes interviews with actresses and other Asian American women who describe their experiences of such stereotyping. From the racist use of white actors to portray Asians in early Hollywood films - through the success of Anna May Wong's sinister dragon lady, to seductive Suzie Wong and the subservient '50's geisha girls, to the Asian American anchorwoman of today - these fascinating films show how images of exoticism and docility socially and psychologically impact Asian American women. "Reloaded" continues with looks at the past 25 years of representation of Asian and Asian American women in U.S. visual media - from blockbuster films and network television, to Asian American cinema and YouTube - to explore what's changed, what's been recycled, and what we can hope for in the future

Eine Muster-Sprache Städte, Gebäude, Konstruktion by Christopher Alexander( Book )

9 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You can use this book to design a house for yourself with your family; you can use it to work with your neighbors to improve your town and neighborhood; you can use it to design an office, or a workshop, or a public building. And you can use it to guide you in the actual process of construction. After a ten-year silence, Christopher Alexander and his colleagues at the Center for Environmental Structure are now publishing a major statement in the form of three books which will, in their words, "lay the basis for an entirely new approach to architecture, building and planning, which will we hope replace existing ideas and practices entirely." The three books are The Timeless Way of Building , The Oregon Experiment , and this book, A Pattern Language . At the core of these books is the idea that people should design for themselves their own houses, streets, and communities. This idea may be radical (it implies a radical transformation of the architectural profession) but it comes simply from the observation that most of the wonderful places of the world were not made by architects but by the people. At the core of the books, too, is the point that in designing their environments people always rely on certain "languages," which, like the languages we speak, allow them to articulate and communicate an infinite variety of designs within a forma system which gives them coherence. This book provides a language of this kind. It will enable a person to make a design for almost any kind of building, or any part of the built environment. "Patterns," the units of this language, are answers to design problems (How high should a window sill be? How many stories should a building have? How much space in a neighborhood should be devoted to grass and trees?). More than 250 of the patterns in this pattern language are given: each consists of a problem statement, a discussion of the problem with an illustration, and a solution. As the authors say in their introduction, many of the patterns are archetypal, so deeply rooted in the nature of things that it seemly likely that they will be a part of human nature, and human action, as much in five hundred years as they are today
