Using Patterns to Improve Our Architectural Vision
January/February 1997 (vol. 14 no. 1)
pp. 53-59
Christopher Alexander is an architect who invented the term "pattern" for use in building towns, homes, and offices. Kerth and Cunningham show how concepts in patterns and architecture for building may be applied in software. They explore the relationship between objects and architecture and propose that Alexander's concept of a "pattern language" can be used to fill the gap between the two-especially as project size increases.
