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.

About the Author:

Leon Krier was born in 1946 in Luxembourg but recently settled in Provence after living in England for twenty years. He is internationally known as a renovator of traditional architecture and urbanism. His theories form part of the urban development recommendations of the OECD and the European Union. They have been widely applied in the United States, via the New Urbanism movement, and, more recently, in Europe. Leon Krier is a personal adviser to the Prince of Wales, for whom he is masterplanning the new city of Poundbury in Dorset in the United Kingdom.
