Pattern Language

I am posting this as a placeholder for the use of the term “Pattern Language.” I used it in my last post in referring to the built environment in the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. It is a term made popular by Christopher Alexander in his book by the same name (Amazon.com). You can explore more at www.patternlanguage.com

Because of my interests in planning I have a tendency to think in terms of how we move through the world and know. This is a good stepping-off point into a discussion about my own work and how I reference and build a painting.

    I was so interested in this concpet before I moved to Newnan as I feel Monroe is an excellent target for multi/mixed use. For one who enjoys walking and locating shops close by, I would love to have moved to such a dwelling. With Greg Thompson’s new grocery store in the heart of town as well as the mill properties close by, a winner.

    About the funding that’s what I thgouht would be the case.I do hope people don’t see it as excluding them; probably not.I’m also interested in the open software used, and it will be interesting to see how it (and the Bookshare scheme) appeals to other authorities.There’s something about social behaviour and borrowing books here that seems to be unique good luck with it.

    They must have asked for it, because the CE daabatse still only goes up to 2007. Although looking at the NY piece closely, it is measuring CPI against CE. What the colors are tracking is change in CPI. The values representing percentage of consumer spending are static. It doesn’t say how current the CE data is, only that the CPI data runs from March 2007 to March 2008.

    I have never been to a concert. Well I saw Lil’ Romeo when I was a kid but that doesn’t count. Ever since coming to Austin I’ve always wanted to go by SXSW but I never have any money. I’ll be pretty much on my own for spring break and if I could see any of these artists (Kimbra and Theophilus London especially) it would make my entire week. And who wouldn’t want to say that their first concert experience happened at SXSW?

    Congrats on your recognition! I recently started lurking, after seeing your blog mentioned in the newspaper. I just read your Milk Week feature; it brought back memories of feeding my 33-week preemie twin sons. Interesting to see how much milk was made — I kept track the first six weeks, while I was mainly pumping for them, but once they got the hang of breastfeeding I gratefully stopped pumping and sterilizing bottles — for a while I felt like a dairy cow, but they were well-fed I wonder how much milk was made in the 10 months they were breastfed? Kudos to Jenn for being able to do it for a whole year!
