Classical Modern Architecture (Terrail, 1997) by Andreas Papadakis explores Neo-Traditionalism and Neo-Classicism in contemporary architecture.The presented projects include contributions by e.g. Rob Krier, Quinlan Terry, Helmut Peuker, Bruno Minardi, François Spoerry, and many others.
Classical buildings are both memorable and familiar because of their human proportions and human scale. From time immemorial classical architecture has had a rich repertoire further enhanced by neoclassical revivals reflecting the spirit of their time (…) For more than a decade now there has been a strong reaction against (…) soulless architecture and cities. A small group of pioneers, led by Leon Krier and subsequently helped by the patronage and support of the Prince of Wales, has succeeded in re-establishing continuity with the past.
