I have always had a passion for architecture but my profession is a physician. A comfortable space can be defined. This comfort is healing. There is a book I consider the bible on this topic, "A Pattern Language", by Christopher Alexander and the Center for Environmental Structure. He applied science to architectural design in the late 1960s and 70s resulting in this book. I go back again and again to this book. When I worked with an architect to design my office, I lread this book. In designing my new home I am reading this book again. Consider interviewing Christopher Alexander as the next step in this topical journey. He is a fascinating person. Several of his students at UC Berkeley continue to run an architecture firm in Berkeley today (JSW-D Architects). These architects originated the ideas made popular by Sarah Sasanka. Thanks for a great show.
