Summary: In Book One of this four-volume work, Alexander describes a scientific view of the world in which all space-matter has perceptible degrees of life, andestablishes this understanding of living structures as an intellectual basis for a new architecture.He identifies fifteen geometric properties which tend to accompany the presence of life in nature, and also in the buildings and cities we make. These properties are seen over and over in nature and in the cities and streets of the past
