In the Autumn of 2007, Lebbeus Woods (1940-2012), long admired for his visionary architecture and mastery of drawing, began a blog. Part forum and part public journal, the eclectic mix of articles, drawings, anecdotes, poetry, interviews, and photographic essays explored topics ranging from architectural theory and criticism to education and politics. Amassing more than three hundred entries by its end in the summer of 2012, it is regarded by many as the most comprehensive and accessible archive of Woods's prodigious creativity. Slow Manifesto: Lebbeus Woods Blog , an edited volume of the blog's centerpiece entries, stands as a fragmentary essay on the nature of architecture that will be dear to architects, students, and thinkers everywhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
."the selection of posts captures the spirit of one of the best architectural versions of the online format." - Daily Dose of Architecture
"This comprehensive collection of articles and images constitutes a significant contribution to modern architectural theory, and the words carry as much weight as Woods' wonderful sketches." - Architizer
"Slow Manifesto draws a chronological narrative through the blog's five-year span, and serves as a selective archive of the late architect/non-architect's ideas and thought processes." - Archinect.com
"Even if you forget the intricate details of his architectural drawings, with their coils of lines, biotic silhouettes, and sense of something both new and decayed, his work sticks like a burr to your brain. And reading through his blog posts, you get a close, candid sense of the person who could imagine such things, not as science fiction, but as possibilities." - Hyperallergic
