Lifetime Achievement Awards Presentation CNU is beginning a new tradition of lifetime achievement awards. Andrés Duany will present the inaugural Athena Legacy medal to Léon Krier, the pioneer of traditional urbanism and perhaps its most effective polemicist. The Athena Legacy medal is named for the goddess, defender of the city, weaver of fabric. It recognizes the legacy of pioneers who laid the groundwork for new urbanism. The first recipients are Christopher Alexander and Léon Krier, teachers and masters for many of us. After the awards ceremony, Léon Krier will share his thoughts on developing the New Urbanism.
