You're Screwing Up The World - Profound Opposite Truths in Architecture

Most of the slides from a talk I got to give at IA CAMP in Tokyo, Japan on June 17, 2015.

The slides in red are place-holders for as-yet unpublished excerpts from a speech Christopher Alexander gave at the Harvard GSD in 1982.

I received permission from Mr. Alexander's representatives to use the material in Tokyo for this event, but have not yet asked for all of the relevant permissions to publish.
