Tomorrow, We Begin Together the Construction of a City

Lebbeus Woods (May 31st, 1940 – ✝ Oct. 30th, 2012) took up a clear position within the field of architecture, one that he advocated uncompromisingly and without mercy. He is one of the truly great visionaries among contemporary architects.

This Media Message by Peter Noever, Vienna, was specially made on the occasion of “Lebbeus Woods, a Celebration” held at The Cooper Union, New York, 2014. The video is based on Lebbeus Woods' Manifesto 1993 and was for more than ten years the backbone of the permanent collection space of experimental architecture 20th/21st century at the MAK Vienna.
