Metropolises Aren't Sustainable
Prathima Manohar of The Urban Vision chatted with Krier and recorded their conversation.
Krier on metropolises: "I think metropolitan development is a mistake and is unsustainable. I don't think there is one metropolitan in the world that works. Metropolises like London, New York and other big concentrations are really like big imperial power centres rooted in the use of too much fossil fuel. I would encourage a more polycentric approach towards urbanization."
Krier also talks specifically about Indian cities and development and explains new urbanism.
