"Surface" is the current buzz-word in contemporary architecture and is the main focus of some of today’s most cutting-edge and exciting architectural projects. This new issue of Architectural Design intends to bring its readers to a new surface consciousness.
This new edition of the cutting-edge Architectural Design brings together a number of emergent works that reflect the idea that surface is more than just a crust or merely a structure onto which architectural work is built.
It expresses the notion that surface is becoming increasingly important as it poses new ways of seeing the world, physically and theoretically.

'Surface' is the current buzz word in contemporary architecture. The most exciting and cutting edge architectural projects, such as Foreign Office Architect's Yokohama Port Terminal and Mark Goulthorpe's Aegis Hyposurface, are being carefully conceptualised and crafted to make surface their main focus. Rather than seeking to define a new movement, this title demonstrates that for architecture surface is now far more than a 'crust' or 'decorative strategy', setting up meaningful relationships between contemporary methods of visioning, making and fabricating. Prompted by digital advancements, surface consciousness represents a whole new way of conceiving tectonic form. Whereas classical and even Modernist architecture polarised ornament and structure, contemporary techniques allow for an integration and blurring of the inside with the outside. In architectural terms this enables an unparalled freedom of expression and form. This is apparent in the diversity of the work featured here by those such as Herzog & de Meuron, Michael Trudgeon, Ashton Raggatt McDougall(ARM) and Lyons, in which a new delight emerges in patterning and texture as well as the sensuous and the ornamental.
Taylor is Professor of Macroeconomics, Department of Economics, Warwick University and Research Fellow, Centre for Economics Policy Research, London.
