Sarajevo: New Tissue. Twenty Tactics of a New Practice — Challenge old ideas of shaping space, thus of living. After destruction, it is not possible to immediately resume the old, disrupted ways of living. Indeed, this can only be done by regressing to them, led by the resurgence of social, political and professional institutions under whose authority they once existed.

But too much has been suffered and lost, too much learned at too great a price to be quickly forgotten. The spirit of invention that makes survival possible under the extreme conditions created by destruction makes possible the new ways of living in a city that will, in a sense, always remain in a paradoxical state of destruction and construction.

The spaces of the old city were shaped to sponsor conventionality. In their damaged state, they offer an entirely new possibility for understanding the origins of both space and habitation. The architect leads the way by codifying this new understanding only in terms of space, without the fixed reference of habitation.

The architect is a designer of space, not of living. The spirit of invention demanded by perpetual transformation thrives best in space shaped by its own invention. Lebbeus Woods is widely regarded as the most exciting and original architectural visionary today. His body of theoretical work and his extraordinary drawings have served as inspiration for architects, artists and legions of students.

These projects define new approaches to the reconstruction of buildings and urban fabric damaged by unpredictable and largely uncontrollable forces of both human and natural origin.

Radical Reconstruction

Architecture, as practiced most notably by Le Corbusier, was about building a utopian landscape while eradicating any traces of the past. Even the possibility of a past would vanish as those who had memories of the old, unplanned cities died out — the modernist utopia would become the only possibility. The end of history and its beginning. Architect Lebbeus Woods takes the opposite approach. His book Radical Reconstruction details his plans for three cities, and explains the theoretical framework behind his designs. Woods considers the scorched earth school of architecture hierarchical. In addition to rewriting social history, rigid planning and traditional structures seek to dominate space, instead of acknowledging the specific material and social conditions unique to an area.
