Andreas Papadakis, Apr 25, 1998 - Architecture - 205 pages
0 Reviews
Leon Krier is one of the most provocative architectural critics of this century who has consistently questioned the wisdom of the principles of the modem movement in both architecture and urban planning. As he forcefully reminds us, architecture is no longer the domain of architects alone. He explains the alternative options in clear language and clarifies them with incisive drawings.

This polemic is essential reading for anyone concerned with the state and direction of architecture and urban planning today. It is an essential tool in the art of building cities, an art that we have lost. Winner of the 1997 silver medal of the Academie francaise.
