Lebbeus Woods, Architect features 40 years of work by one of the most influential architects of our time. Admired among architects, designers, filmmakers, writers, and artists alike, Woods produced experimental projects marked by conceptual depth, imaginative breadth, lasting beauty, and ethical potency. His designs address cities ruined by war, such as Zagreb and Sarajevo, or damaged by nature, as in the San Francisco earthquake drawings. Additional projects consider political divisions of space, like in Havana or Berlin.
