"Buildings have often been studied whole in space, but never before have they been studied whole in time." "Architects (and architectural historians) are interested only in a building's original intentions. Most are dismayed by what happens later, when a building develops its own life, responsive to the life within. To get the rest of the story - to explore the years between the dazzle of a new building and its eventual corpse - Stewart Brand went to facilities managers and real estate professionals, to preservationists and building historians, to photo archives and to futurists. He inquired, "What makes some buildings come to be loved?" He found that all buildings are forced to adapt, but only some adapt gracefully." "How Buildings Learn is a masterful new synthesis which 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. A rich resource and point of departure, as stimulating for the general reader and home improvement hobbyist as for the building professional, the book is sure to generate ideas, provoke debate, and shake up habitual thinking." "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 Chatsworth - this is a far-ranging survey of unexplored essential territory." "More than any other human artifact, buildings improve with time - if they're allowed. How Buildings Learn shows how to work with time rather than against it."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved… (plus d'informations)

First Stewart Brand is an expert observer. Next Stewart Brand is skilled at thinking about what he has seen. How Buildings Learn is a fantastic read from a writer that who has the uncanny ability to take what he has seen and distill it into something more than the obvious. Brand's musings and observation, after having read them, feel like 'oh yeah I knew that' but of course the point is you did and you do but it takes someone like a Stewart Brand it takes Stewart Brand to lead by example to show and teach how to look at what has been around you all along - buildings - and see and recognize and realize the things that you already knew.

How Buildings Learn is a must read not only because it clearly and coherently stands up to the arguments that Stewart Brand is making but it also stands the test of time. From its initial writing to now the arguments ring true. Additionally it clearly lays out how to observe and how to think about what you have seen and if you read well and take notes you just might learn how to present your observations in a compelling way.

A great topical book. A great sourcebook on architecture. A super effective reference book for seeing & writing. ( )

> All buildings are predictions. All predictions are wrong.

Notionally a book about buildings, but is often shared by the Web design community for the inchoate idea around layers and paces of change which Brand goes on to flesh out fully in [The Long Now].

It's a book that's been on my wishlist for a few years, along with a few other design classics, so I was pleased to find I enjoyed it immensely. His advocacy of the vernacular and avuncular come with my Jane Jacobs inspired views. And there's many a good quote to nick.

this was probably the most influential book i read while in architecture school (aside from Murakami's Hard Boiled Wonderland). Brand reminds us that the number one way to create a sustainable environment is to make it adaptable. He argues that the best buildings are buildings that change with the times. Warehouses are an excellent example. They can become almost anything, from manufacturing plants to high-end condos. a very thoughtful and well-written book. ( )

I will never look at a building the same way again! These are the random notes I had in my Bbrry about this book:

Architects either have too much control or too little
Architecture skills as craft vs art
Inability to adapt during build due to legal contract crap
Buildings leak!
Curse of architectural photography-awards won by picture, not by if clients think the building serves their purpose

And so much more! ( )
