How Buildings Learn: Chapter 4 - Houseproud: The High Road

How Buildings Learn by Stewart Brand is a really great read about the underlying processes that govern the evolution of buildings over time.

The High Road is high-visibility, often high-style, nearly always high-cost. This is the way to grow a High Road building. Take it by stages with constant minute refinement. There's a huge time lag between when you need something and when you actually get it. Trust, intimacy, intense use, and time are what made these buildings work so well.
