This paper contains a new proof of the formation of trapped spheres, in vacuum spacetimes, by the focusing of gravitational waves, from generic data. The first such result was obtained by Christodoulou [Chr]. We exploit the same physical mechanism, but give a logically independent construction of these spacetimes.
