- June 13, 2022
This book is a true must-read. Leon Krier is one of the best-known – and most provocative – architects and urban theorists in the world. Until now, however, his ideas have circulated mainly among a professional audience of architects, urban planners and academics. In The Architecture of Community, Krier has taken his texts from his book Architecture: Choice or Fate. Here he refines and updates his thinking on how to make sustainable, humane and attractive villages, cities and towns. The book includes drawings, diagrams and photographs of his built works, which have not been seen on a large scale until now. With three new chapters, The Architecture of Community provides a contemporary roadmap for designing or completing today’s fragmented communities. This is one of the most important and best-performed works on traditional and classical urbanism.
