The nature of order

I have been reading christopher alexander for a while now,
like all programmers involved with patterns.
But the Nature of Order seems like a whole larger scale work, although always implied by his other work.
a) The process of growth is not simply accretion, but by
elaborating on the previously existing "whole".
b) find centers, and emphasize them.
c) design proceeds by "structure preserving" transformations.
d) but, only a certain sort of process can create, and preserve such structure.
