How Buildings Learn
What Happens After They're Built
From the connected farmhouses of New England to I.M. Pei's Media Lab, from "satisficing" to "form follows funding," from the evolution of bungalows to the invention of Santa Fe Style, from Low Road military surplus buildings to a High Road English classic like Chatsworththis is a far-ranging survey of unexplored essential territory.
More than any other human artifacts, buildings improve with timeif they're allowed to. How Buildings Learn shows how to work with time rather than against it.
