Leon Krier, María Sánchez, and Pedro Godoy have been teaming up for over 17 years to design new traditional cities, among them Ciudad Cayalá in Guatemala, and Herencia de Allende in Mexico. In addition to their close and successful professional collaboration, Mr. Krier, Mr. Godoy, and Ms. Sánchez share a profound fellowship which not only has enhanced their design work over the years, but has also helped them spearhead the advancement of traditional architecture and urbanism in Latin America, Europe and the United States. Their collaborative work has been widely acclaimed and received numerous awards including an Arthur Ross Award for Civic Design.
In this conversation moderated by architect and ICAA Fellow Rodrigo Bollat Montenegro, the team discusses the tools required for the art of making places, share their experiences in working together, and provide insight into the role of the architect in the foundation of a new traditional city.”
