From the bestselling author of Missoula and Into Thin Air: an extraordinary profile of the iconoclastic architect Christopher Alexander, who has spent his remarkable career advocating human-centered design.

In this compelling portrait of an iconoclastic architect, Jon Krakauer's powers as one of our finest investigative journalists are on display. As he delves into the life and work of Christopher Alexander, who sharply criticizes the Modern school of architecture and advocates for an approach in which people reclaim control over their built environment, we are drawn into a singular vision of human-centered design. Alexander's work has exerted profound influence in fields from design and planning to sociology and software, and Krakauer's profile gives us a personal, organic view of the man behind the work.
