About this video
About the author

In this conference Léon Krier explains the importance of urbanity and the essential artistic elements that compose a traditional city.  He begins by explaining how fossil fuels have affected the design of architecture in big cities and how they are an important element to consider when developing one.  He also explains how cities have evolved through time depending on the situation and the needs each civilization has had.  Krier expresses his thoughts about modern architecture and modern cities and urges to a more romantic style of building by stressing on the importance of traditional architecture and traditional development of cities.  He shows how modern tendencies have modified urbanity and the essential social purposes of cities in today's societies.  Finally, he states the relevance of architects and appeals to them in the transformation that will affect the way people live and interact with others in the future.
