Personal comments on: A Pattern Language

I was introduced to the book A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander on June 12, 2002. Since then, I have been reading in a random order through the book, and started to give my comments on some of the patterns.

A summary of the patterns and their relationships can be found here. Some parts of this book, half translated to German, can be found here.
