The Architectural Tuning of Traditional Settlement

Leon Krier is one of the most provocative architects and urban theoreticians in the world today. In lectures, writings and design projects, he has developed a vision of traditional form for human settlements for contemporary society. In his latest book The Architecture of Community, he provides a contemporary road map for designing or completing today’s fragmented communities. The book contains descriptions and images of the author’s built and unbuilt projects, including projects in Seaside, Florida, as well as the town of Poundbury in England, which was commissioned by the Prince of Wales in 1988, and has become a model for ecological planning and building. He has taught architecture and urbanism at the Royal College of Arts in London and at Princeton and Yale universities, among other institutions. In 2003, he received the inaugural Richard Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture. In addition, he is the designer of the University of Miami SChool of Architecture’s Jorge M. Perez Architecture Center.
