Christopher Alexander Talks on the Process of Creating Life

Although the quality of this recording is not the best, the authority of Alexander is so strong that you are hooked whats ewer! 
The First Part of Chris's lecture to the Urban Design Group in London on the 23rd of November 2011. After being introduced by John Worthington, he proceeds to take off his jacket and gives one of the most memorable talks that I have ever listened to. His opinion that "Design" is one of the most fatuous activities of an architect was challenging to this group of Architects and Planners at the time but after a careful study of his talk it seems to me that that he may be absolutely right. As they say enjoy! - Islandshrine

It's a tragedy that a BBC team is not foot following this one of our times greatest men.
Five hundred years is a long time, and I don't expect many of the people I interview will be known in the year 2500. Christopher Alexander may be an exception. David Creelman, author, Interviewer and Editor. Knowledge Manager, HR magazine, Toronto
