This book has been the very core of my young adulthood. I will grow knowing that the seed has been planted. I recommend any young designer to read this book. If it resonates with in... you best keep it with you along all your travels. In your lowest lows, read it. And your highest highs, Quote it. You are now part of the beginning of a whole new revolution that you created yourself.

A book that should be on every shelf of creative people. It's my source of metaphors when I'm in the studio.

A Pattern Language is one of the world best books!!! It will be very useful to a city architect and home designer, beginner and professional. The book describes problems and ready to use solutions. But the most important is that it helps you to understand each particular issue not as an isolated entity but to connect it with fundamental views of the world. Even after you read it all it definitely will be one of the most frequently used books.

I have to give it 5 stars because there is no other way to describe it but as amazing. Forgive me the long review, but it was a library checkout and I want to refer back to it. I was initially annoyed ... Read full review

User Review  - Wendy - Goodreads

I want to own this book. It's $45 used, which seems steep, but the library won't let me renew it anymore. At first it seems intimidatingly dense and obscure, then it reveals a certain mid-'70s ... Read full review
