Leon 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 agreeableto live in, an art that we are in danger of losing.

Review:

This book should be on the table of all contemporary architects; but they would go bright red whenever they looked at it. --Jean Dutourd of the Académie Française

Reading this book I could 'physically' feel the poison of classicism slowly and gently invading my veins. Is it a therapy or an addiction? --Bernardo Bertolucci

Lavishly illustrated with the author's drawings and lucid, witty diagrams. --The American Enterprise

About the Author:

Léon Krier, the master planner of Poundbury, the Prince of Wales's new city in Dorset, is internationally known as a renovator of traditional architecture and urbanism. He was born in 1946 in Luxembourg and has recently moved to Provence after living in London for more than twenty years.
