The city is the focus of his design, and his buildings are not isolated works of art. The city itself is the work of art, according to Pophyrios (1984). As such, Krier states that that the physical and structural complexity and density of a city comes out of the social and cultural complexity of this city. He conceives of urban blocks in terms of how they can form complex urban patterns – some urban blocks are more likely to fit together to fit into patterns then others would be. His mantra is that “urban blocks should be as small in length and width as is typologically viable. they should form as many well-defined streets and squares as possible in the form of a multi-directional horizontal pattern of urban spaces” (Krier, 1984, p. 43). He conceives of cities being made of building blocks, such as streets and squares. It may either form the streets and square or it may result from a pattern of streets and squares. He envisions that, in a European city, the building blocks are small and typologically complex in the urban centres, and, as the buildings grow away from the urban centres, the building blocks grow typologically larger, then finally dissolve into single free-standing objects. This is most pronounced when the building blocks are of the industrial age, as opposed to the pre-industrial age (Krier, 1984, p. 44). Krier also states that the periphery of the cities eventually become more of a part of the urban centre. When this occurs, the gardens which were a part of these peripheries soon become crowded, as well, with residential premises and artisans’ workshops. This is considered to be, according to Krier, internal densification and exploitation of the urban blocks.
