Top 10 Drawings That Became Reality

“Manifesto,” by Lebbeus Woods, 1993

The great artist and architect Lebbeus Woods was best known for his stunning futuristic illustrations, which inspired countless designers, writers, filmmakers, and dreamers to imagine a world outside the ordinary. Even though his work was mostly relegated to paper, Woods’ amazing drawings had us thinking of other great sketches and the buildings they spawned. So in tribute, we’ve compiled illustrations of projects we have recently featured on the site, along with photos of the completed structures! (And we’ve thrown in a couple awesome bonuses too.)
