Transparent Structure

It struck me while reading a perhaps lesser book that the structure of Christopher Alexander's writings have always had a beautiful transparency to them; he says what he is getting at and how and why before he gets to it. It's filling me with a deep frustration about the nature of other writings, books I must read and read and read in order to get at what their author is, finally, trying to say.


I have this same deep and unabiding frustration with games and it's the first time I've recognized it outside of games. How fucking disappointed I am

This place is no better but these are my notes, not a published book.
