My collection of notes about the four-book series The Nature of Order by Christopher Alexander.

About this site

This site is a living (as in work-in-progress) and loose collection of notes, Digital Garden style.

Right now I’m mostly in the process of slowly transferring my private notes taken during my reading to here, editing them slightly so they make more sense and don’t require too much context to understand.

Find out what’s going on right now. Help me growing this site.


There is no table of contents. You navigate this collection of ideas by following links from one note to another.
