Lebbeus Woods (1940-2012): Building Landscapes

Lebbeus Woods (1940-2012): Building Landscapes | Beijing, China Powerhouse | Scoop.it

"A few architects have explored the possibilities of fusing buildings and landscapes [...] While such are not in themselves inherently ecological, this approach indicates a sensibility that could lead in that direction. At the very least, it manifests a different attitude toward architecture, one that plays down a heroic conquest of nature and looks for modes of coexistence with it. As in all cases of coexistence, neither presence is sacrificed at the expense of the other; rather, each impacts the other in creating—hopefully—a balance, even a new form of harmony." Lebbeus Woods (1940-2012)
