Part of a 5-fold Pattern Language.
Subsequently published in Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential (1986)

Pattern template

Physical Roughly rectangular indoor spaces.

Broader Partially isolated contexts; Partially exposed perspective context; Variation in size of perspective contexts; Limiting length of communication pathways; Local sources for perspective nourishment; Occupiable sites for perspective inactivity; Context for forms of perspective presentation; Local opportunities for perspective activity; Small-scale perspective interaction contexts; Hospitable domain for perspective nourishment; Provision for temporary perspective inactivity; Common domain at the focal point of a structure; Enfolded overview domains of minimum proportions; Relatively isolated context for each perspective; Semi-autonomous contexts for maturing perspectives; Hospitable non-linear domain external to structures; Exchange contexts controlled by a single perspective; Appropriate configuration for perspective interaction; Organization of structure to provide occupiable sites; Interrelationship of contexts of developing perspectives; Hospitable reception of external perspectives by structures; Internal transition spaces enhancing structural entry points; Integrating transition pathways between levels into a structure; Semi-autonomous contexts for perspectives of decreasing activity; Structures adaptable to changing number of embodied perspectives; Integrating coordinated exposure to irrationality into structures; Functional enhancement of domains separating complementary structures; Appropriate configuration for interaction of complementary perspectives.

Narrower Overview of external contexts; Distortion resistant boundaries; Level generation of minimum tension; Partially enclosed internal domains; Substantive distinctions separating domains; Harmonizing space distribution between levels; Inter-domain contexts for perspective adjuncts; Primary inter-level connections at transitions in boundary orientation; Congruence between spaces defined by the framework and spaces defined by the processes within it.
