Lebbeus Woods, Architect - The last leg of Lebbeus Woods, Architect, which began in 2013 at SFMOMA and traveled to the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, opened on April 17 at The Drawing Center in New York City. The exhibition features over 100 drawings, models and sketchbooks that span from 1980's Einstein Tomb to The Light Pavilion in Chengdu, China, completed with Christoph a. Kumpusch one month after Woods died in October 2012. The undeniable skill and imagination of Woods come across all the more when seeing his creations in person, which can happen until June 15, 2014.
