Krier plans classical city for Guatemala
Ciudad Cayala first phase finished
Leon Krier has masterplanned a new city in Guatemala.
Ciudad Cayala is a new town being built within Guatemala City’s boundary.
Developer and landowner Grupo Cayala wanted the town to include Mayan ornamental detail, and it includes an Athanaeum designed by Notre Dame professor Richard Economakis.
Two graduates of the architecture school at the University of Notre Dame, María Sánchez and Pedro Godoy, of Estudio Urbano, were also involved in the detailed design.
