Buildings have often been studies whole in space, but never before have they been studied whole in time. How Buildings Learn is a masterful new synthesis that proposes that buildings adapt best when constantly refined and reshaped by their occupants, and that architects can mature from being artists of space to becoming artists of time. From the connected farmhouses of New England to I.M. Pei's Media Lab, from qsatisficingq to qform follows funding, q 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 Chatsworthathis is a far-ranging survey of unexplored essential territory. More than any other human artifacts, buildings improve with timeaif they're allowed to. How Buildings Learn shows how to work with time rather than against it.More than any other human artifacts, buildings improve with timeaif theya#39;re allowed to.
