The Architect's Toolkit

Design Elements are basic design concepts that can be applied to various projects, creating personalized results.

Famous architect Christopher Alexander wrote about a "pattern language" for designers - a sort of toolkit from which an architect could choose ideas - and then implement those basic ideas in a customized way.

The links above show some common design elements that I've successfully used on many different projects.
