Lebbeus Woods Quotes

Ive always been interested, - if you look back at my work from the beginning, really - Ive always been interested in the idea of the artificial landscape. Reforming the landscape. Architecture being a method of reforming the earths surface. We reshape the earths surface, from architecture to paving streets, to parking lots and buildings that are really reforming the surface of the earth. Reforming nature, taking over what we find. And were mushing it around and remaking a new earth - or, what we used to call Terra Nova.

Architecture is a political act, by nature. It has to do with the relationships between people and how they decide to change their conditions of living.

If there is no idea in the drawing, there is no idea in the constructed project. That's the expression of the idea. Architects make drawings that other people build. I make the drawings. If someone wants to build from those, that's up to them. I feel I'm making architecture. I believe the building comes into being as soon as it's drawn.

Unlike the past decades, the present moment is lacking in architectural discourse.

Architecture is about ideas in the first place. You don't get to design until you have an idea.

— Lebbeus Woods

Architects are today routinely indoctrinated against the dumb box. Even advertising urges us to "think outside the box." Why? Because it is thought we all hate the box for being too dumb, too boring, and we want to escape it. If we do escape, by buying the advertised product, we usually find ourselves inside another dumb box populated by boring people just like us. It is clearly possible to live an extraordinary life inside a dumb box. Question: is it possible to lead an extraordinary life in anything other than a dumb box?
