We live in a time of social and cultural change.
Old patterns are losing their validity and relevance, new patterns are needed and in demand.
We need a new approach which can formulate, generate and engage such patterns.
The pattern language approach of Christopher Alexander serves this purpose – the interdisciplinary and participatory building blocks for societal change.
The PURPLSOC 2017 conference contributions cover 25 domains – from anthropology and automation to political science and systems science – for a comprehensive perspective of current pattern
research and practice.
