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.

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.

His images are breathtakingly inventive. Highly impractical but who cares? Woods is more of an artist that a "visionary architect." I saw the exhibition in NY and was inspired in many ways. Years ago he spoke here and was quite a pill in the question and answer period. According to his gallery dealer, he was a handful to deal with as well. If you are vaguely interested in his work, teaching drawing, architecture or art, you should have this book in your library. It has great reproductions.

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.
