Léon Krier is one of the best-known – and most provocative – architects and urban theoreticians in the world. Until now, however, his ideas have circulated mostly among a professional audience of architects, city planners, and academics. In The Architecture of Community, Krier has reconsidered and expanded writing from his 1998 book Architecture: Choice or Fate. Here he refines and updates his thinking on the making of sustainable, humane, and attractive villages, towns, and cities. This book includes drawings, diagrams, and photographs of his built works that have not been widely seen until now. Krier explains his theories on classical and vernacular urbanism and architecture, while providing practical design guidelines for creating livable urban spaces.
