  • Christopher Alexander’s original pattern language about community and architectural design – Link
  • EcoTrust’s pattern language for a sustainable economy (unfortunately, EcoTrust let their domain expire, but their pattern language is available from the Internet’s Wayback Machine – Link https://web.archive.org/web/20161022163623/http://www.reliableprosperity.net/
  • Public Sphere Project’s Liberating Voices pattern language – Link
  • GroupWorks pattern language for good group process – Link

And among emerging pattern languages, we particularly like
