The Linz Cafe

By Christopher Alexander Oxford University Press, 1982. 96 pages.

The Linz Cafe is the fourth in the seminal series of books on architecture. The Linz Cafe describes the application of the theory to a single building commissioned by the organizers of the 1980 summer exposition "Forum Design" in Linz, Austria. From the Introduction: "The Linz Cafe is one of the first buildings in which I have succeeded in carrying out almost all the intentions expressed in the earlier volumes of this series. It is a small three storey building, built on the banks of the Danube in Linz." –Christopher Alexander. This book tells an intimate story of the conception and realization of the building.

The book is a sort of gift.—J. Baldwin, Co-evolution Quarterly
A welcome experiment in the evolution of architecture for post-industrial societies.—Josef Juhasz
