Format: Paperback
Lebbeus Woods is perhaps unequalled, and definitely the most imitated renderer in the architectural world. With that said, this book is just a shadow of his masterpiece, "Anarchitecture: Architecture as a Political Act"
I recommend this for thos who already know Woods and can't get enough of him, but as an introduction, definitely read Anarchitecture.

lebbeus woods' visions cross the border between real and apocalyptic. his highly evocative renderings are rooted in his surrounding environment, but they move us to the realm of fantasmic architecture. brilliant.

As an architecture student this is a great book to get some insight on his ideas and have excellent examples of his work. The SFMOMA exhibit has alot of the work in this book and I'm glad because I thought some of these would have been harder to find.

Since architecture exists we've been concerned with the renowal of itself. From baroque to contemporary architecture through modernism, we've been looking for new languages, always moving forward, with more or less success. Lebbeus Woods takes this research to a whole new level. His approaches to such controversial topics as the role of architecture in cities devastated by war are simply brilliant. Minds like his are the ones pushing forward architecture.
