Independent Regions


Scale: ,


Metropolitan regions will not come to balance until each one is small and autonomous enough to be an independent sphere of culture.


Wherever possible, work toward the evolution of independent regions in the world; each with a population between 2 and 10 million; each with its own natural and geographic boundaries; each with its own economy; each one autonomous and self-governing; each with a seat in a world government, without the intervening power of larger states or countries.

This pattern originally appeared in "A Pattern Language", the work that inspired this website and much of the work within it. The original book is by Christopher Alexander, Sara Ishikawa, Murray Silverstein with Max Jacobson, Ingrid Fishdahl-King, and Shlomo Angel.
