Abara & Lebbeus Woods?

My brother recommended I check out Abara, a manga series from 2005-2006. It's got some pretty nice future-distopia images in it, a few are a la Lebbeus Woods. In the story, people live in infinitely tall buildings, constantly being built and rebuilt atop one another. I wonder if he influenced Tsutomu Nihei's work at all?

You can read Abara either online or via an iPad reader like Mangashelf.
