There are other fine New Urbanist/Traditionalist projects on their website. Some of the best architecture I've seen for Southern California.
Stunning project.

Polyzoides is the main founder of the New Urbanism movement which strongly encourages classical and traditional architecture in mixed-use, walkable, human scale developments. He is a 'giant' of architecture, urban planning and design in our modern times.


Great article
Stefanos Polyzoides plans to make cities more livable

So the extent of your wiki entry determines how significant you may be? You have no idea how Wikipedia works...

Anyway, just to allay your ignorance here's an excerpt from the article I linked. Don't be ignorant now?

Quote:
Architect Stefanos Polyzoides is a godfather of the hugely influential movement in architecture and urban planning known as the New Urbanism. All those suburbs that decided to put in little downtowns and walkable areas? The whole loft thing? Infill development that puts condos in empty lots instead of sprawl out in the exurbs? Credit Polyzoides, his wife, Elizabeth Moule, and a small group of colleagues for co-founding the influential movement and Polyzoides for giving it a name.

Polyzoides believes that architecture should not just be about who can design the fanciest or wildest-looking building. If human beings have the obligation to leave the world a better place than they found it, designing the buildings and communities in which we live can play a huge part.

Im pretty sure all those things existed in Europe long time ago, how is he the father of any of it? Just because someone wrote an article doesnt mean its true. He may had an influance but calling him a father of is silly.

Polyzoides coined the term New Urbanism. Anyway, you guys can believe what you want there's no denying he's a giant of the movement and it's documented in every related article, even your beloved Wikipedia.

Rob and Lon Krier
Krier, Polyzoides and Moule are all colleagues btw and they all received awards last year for their contribution to classical/traditional architecture.

Quote:
COMMUNITY DESIGN/CIVIC DESIGN/CITY PLANNING

Moule & Polyzoides; Pasadena, California


As founders of the Congress for New Urbanism, Elizabeth Moule and Stefanos Polyzoides have helped revive and refine the techniques of traditional urbanism, as well as creating important urban interventions that serve as exemplars for everyone involved with town building. Through writings and exhibitions, they have helped us to rediscover the valuable contributions of our predecessors in architecture and urban design.
