Description

Léon Krier, theorist and reformer of modern traditional architecture and urbanism, reveals in this layman's manifesto why, in matters of democracy, architecture is far behind politics. The fact that modernism has never been a popular choice is not, according to Krier, due to people's ignorance but to modernism's own conceptual poverty. This polemic is essential reading for anyone concerned with architecture and urban planning today. It will be a vital tool in the renaissance of the art of building cities that are pleasant and agreeable to live in, an art that we are in danger of losing.
