From the fall of 2007 until the summer of 2012, architect and educator Lebbeus Woods kept a blog. In more than three hundred entries, he wrote about art and architecture, theory and criticism, education and politics, and much more. His entries are personal, thoughtful, opinionated, and engaging - and they provide a critical look at the discipline by one of the most revered architects of our time. Additionally, the blog became a sounding board for Lebbeus's followers and a place for him to engage the community (Lebbeus almost always joined in the conversation in the comments).

The posts include brief articles, interviews, photographic essays, stories, and poems, as well as several guest entries. There are also numerous mini-series interspersed throughout: from an in-depth investigation of slums ("The Problem," "What to Do?," and "One Idea") to "Why I Became an Architect" in two parts to a sequence of his stunning notebooks. In August 2012, Lebbeus announced that he was stepping away from the blog in a post titled "Goodbye (sort of)." He wrote: "I must say that it has been a privilege to have communicated with so many bright and energetic readers. It has been a unique experience in my life that I will always value highly. Thank you for all you have given." Lebbeus passed away at the end of October.
