Quote of the Week: Léon Krier, “The Architecture of Community”

Léon Krier

Prof. Léon Krier of the Neotraditionalist school of contemporary architecture.

Just like artists, experimental scientists generally make discoveries not by systematic thought but by leaps of intuition. Yet it is only through logical deduction and proof that intuitions can become scientific knowledge and enter the realm of applied science. Medical patience are not injected with experimental substances; passengers are not flown in x-planes; and yet modernist architects claim the right to house millions of citizens in experimental buildings and cities.

▪ Léon Krier, The Architecture of Community (Island Press, 2009) extract from page 67.
