Widely considered one of the most innovative experimental architects working today, Lebbeus Woods combines an extraordinary mastery of drawing with an analysis of architectural and urban form and social and political conditions. In this book, Woods narrates a sequence of projects he completed between 1990 and 2004, through which he investigated a consistent, if evolving, set of ideas and challenges. Karsten Harries places Woods’s work within a long tradition of resistance to architectural convention, while curator Tracy Myers analyzes the complex ideas in Woods’s oeuvre, weaving into the text a conversation with Woods that reveals the interplay of passion and intellect that informs and drives his work.
Accompanied exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art’s Heinz Architectural Center, July 31, 2004 to January 16, 2005.
