Lebbeus Woods.

Lebbeus Woods born 1940 in Lansing, Michigan is an American architect and artist. Woods, who envisions experimental constructs and environments, has stated, the interplay of metrical systems establishing boundaries of materials and energetic forms is the foundation of a universal science universcience whose workers include all individuals. The majority of his explorations deal with the design of systems in crisis: the order of the existing being confronted by the order of the new. His designs are politically charged and provocative visions of a possible reality; provisional, local, and charged with the investment of their creators. He is best known for his proposals for San Francisco, Havana, and Sarajevo that were included in the publication of Radical Reconstruction in 1997. Woods studied architecture at the University of Illinois and engineering at Purdue University and first worked in the offices of Eero Saarinen, but in 1976 turned exclusively to theory and experimental projects. He is currently a professor of architecture at the Cooper Union in New York City. In 1988, Woods co-founded the Research Institute for Experimental Architecture, a nonprofit institution devoted to the advancement of experimental architectural thought and practice while promoting the concept and perception of architecture itself.
