The Architecture Of Patterns

Interesting book on patterns in architecture written by Paul Andersen and David Salomon.

We first heard from Paul, founder of !ndie Architecture, when he was on the short list for the 2009 P.S.1 YAP competition with his entry Lawn Life, a surburban-inspired synthetic turf lawn related to Paul’s studies on suburbia.

The book analyzes projects from several firms (Atelier Manferdini, BIG, Ciro Najle, EMERGENT/Thomas Wiscombe, Foreign Office Architects, Jason Payne and Heather Roberge, Herzog & de Meuron, J. Mayer H. Architects, Reiser+Umemoto, Responsive Systems Group, and !ndie architecture) to discover the relation of patterns in architecture at several scales.

Full index, editorial and photos after the break.
