Lebbeus Woods in OneFiveFour demonstrates magnificently the brilliant sensitivity and of hand-drawn visions in comparison to the vapid stupidity of computer-generated imagery.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what i expected
This small book by Lebbeus Woods( the size is a plus compared to other publications of his opus) isn't his best publication.
Woods is a really interesting subject, both his texts and draftings, explore the limits of architecture, and the concept behind projecting architecture.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: OneFiveFour (Paperback)
This small book by Lebbeus Woods( the size is a plus compared to other publications of his opus) isn't his best publication.
Woods is a really interesting subject, both his texts and draftings, explore the limits of architecture, and the concept behind projecting architecture.
This book does not show neither to a good extent.The text at the start is quite short, and the drawings... they look photocopied from some other anthologies already published.

There are better books of Lebbeus Woods around, this one is forgettable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary Visions, June 5, 2011
This review is from: OneFiveFour (Paperback)
Lebbeus Woods in OneFiveFour demonstrates magnificently the brilliant sensitivity and of hand-drawn visions in comparison to the vapid stupidity of computer-generated imagery. Woods captures the difficult, labor-intensive, built-nature of architecture rather than the all too deceptive manipulation of marketable pixels demanded by minds obsessed with ROI spreadsheets. His drawings require close examination for appreciation and knowledge of his understanding of structures in harmful chaos to counter the comforting illusions of craven professional architecture and its vulgar masters the legal and financial industries.

These works tell the truth of our worldwide tormenting and tormented environment in which there is no safety and security only misleading promises of building codes and oversight of owners and their designers. CAD lies by its nature, Woods does not.

Woods' challenging visions should be essential continuing education for anybody licensed to savage the earth.
