Lebbeus Woods is a true visionary, whose drawings are among the richest and passionate as any in the history of architecture.

For his first monograph, OneFiveFour, Woods painstakingly drew a book of two-page spreads that weave text, architectural elements, math, and physics into a unique vision of a new humanism for the information age. The powerful immediacy of the art makes it one of the most influential books Princeton Architectural Press have ever published.

Critic Michael Sorkin says it best: "In the mesmerizing, astonishingly wrought images of Lebbeus Woods...we are plunged into unfamiliar territory, a world of architecture beginning again....His ever-expanding discourse of the almost impossible is an inspiration not just to build, but to think."
