Krakow, Poland: the 2000 European Capital of Culture, a city with legends of dragons and where kings were once crowned. This month in our CSINext chapter meeting will look at the urban design of this European jewel through the ages. We will look at how ideas of urban design have changed from the medieval grid and fortification walls of a royal city, pre-war prosperity, social realism, modernism, and to the opportunities brought in capitalism. The presentation will discuss how people live in the various plans and effects to quality of life and show examples of architecture throughout the city's history.
