The Zuker House

Zuker-Patterns- 117.docx-2


A house built in 1989 in Austin Texas, by Gary Zuker. The house’s design and construction was heavily influenced by Alexander’s “A Pattern Language”. The new patterns offered here were developed during that construction, and are not authorized or approved by the Alexander or the other authors of that seminal book.

Here’s a link to a story of the development of the house, and a New York Times article.
