Lebbeus Woods

The work of Lebbeus Woods, currently a professor of architecture at the Cooper Union in New York City, has influenced the designs of many films including 12 Monkeys, Alien 3 or The Fifth Element. "His work is experimental architecture in its most powerful, and politically provocative, sense."(BLDGBLOG)

The majority of his explorations deal with the design of systems in crisis, visions of a possible reality, provisional, local, and charged with the investment of their creators and are best known for his proposals for San Francisco, Havana, and Sarajevo.
His website provides access to projects and writings of his own and his collaborators whereas his blog features the latest articles accompanied by extensive discussions in the comments sections.
