Item description for Earthquake! A Post-Biblical View by Lebbeus Woods...
The first in the new RIEAeuropa Concepts Series, this monograph presents a summary of design research exploring the implications of earthquake for architecture and urban form in regions of seismic instability. The author believes that radically new design strategies are needed for these regions, and he presents his proposals in an extensive series of drawings and models for complex tectonic landscapes formed by unpredictable natural forces. The new RIEAeuropa Concepts Series is a series of monographs that present one new idea/concept per volume. Their audience are primarily students, young architects and people who are eager to encounter innovative new concepts in architecture.

disappointed Feb 24, 2003
A lack of description and unorganized thoghts clutter the undescriptive graphics leaving a viewer disorientated and wishing for more than graphics. The earlier books seem to have more direction and clearity
