"OneFiveFour, the 1989 monograph of American architect Lebbeus Woods, has been reprinted to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Princeton Architectural Press. Full of convention-bending sketches, the book--which helped make Woods into a cult hero among students and academics-- creates art out of math and physics." --Surface, March 2011

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.
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.
