Nikos A. Salingaros
Dr. Salingaros was born in Perth, Australia. He grew up in Greece and the Bahamas, got degrees from the University of Miami and the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and has been teaching at the University of Texas since 1983. He lives in San Antonio with his physician wife, Dr. Marielle Blum, and their two daughters.
Twenty years ago he met the architect and theorist Christopher Alexander, best known for his books “A Pattern Language” and “The Timeless Way of Building”. Dr. Salingaros has worked with Alexander on the editing and shaping of Alexander’s “The Nature of Order”, a four-volume work on art, science, nature and beauty.
Over the years, Dr. Salingaros found himself more and more preoccupied with architecture, building, living form, and the foolishness of Modernism. About nine years ago he began publishing his own papers on these topics.
