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 spreadsthat 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 we 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 aninspiration not just to build, but to think."

"OneFiveFour, the 1989 monograph of American architect Lebbeus Woods, has been reprinted to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Princeton Architectural Press. Full of convention-bending sketches, the book--which helped make Woods into a cult hero among students and academics-- creates art out of math and physics." --Surface, March 2011
