Christopher Alexander, a world-renowned progressive architect, discusses the directions of contemporary design. In the second half of this program he elaborates on his conception of wholeness. Alexander argues against people conceptualizing themselves as being "mechanisms" inside of a larger sphere. There are objective differences between "good buildings" and "bad buildings", contrary to what architects have been taught. Saatkamp reads an excerpt from "Battle" and Alexander describes a school construction project he directed in Japan that formed the basis of the book.
