Quotes for Planners, Christopher Alexander

“To seek the timeless way we must first know the quality without a name. There is a central quality, which is the root criterion of life and spirit in a man, a town, a building, or a wilderness. This quality is objective and precise, but it cannot be named.”

— Christopher Alexander, architect, A Timeless Way of Building (1979)
