Beautiful, passionate, and poetic. This book treads the so very thin line between the poetic and the rigorously conceived, building, ultimately, an argument for the generation of an architecture that is more than just democratic, that is a real response to the real dynamic world we inhabit. The renderings, which I just saw first hand at the Sfmoma, are spectacular, and represent a rare devotion to craft and poetic, heart and structure. Rip lebbeus woods.
