The work presented in this issue of Architectural Design focuses on surface in an effort to recognise a spatial condition that lies outside traditional architectural models of surface and substrate. Shifting between digital constructions, computer science imaging, built realisation, and theoretical aspects; issues of transparency, articulation and stability are brought to the fore. The focus is on surface as the subject of study rather than the oppositional formation of whether surface is depth or depth is surface or the phrenologist's ability to strip away to find hidden depths. For some contributors surface is investigated as a meaningful relationship between contemporary methods of visioning, making, and fabricating. Other papers discuss contemporary perceptions relative to historical and theoretical frameworks.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
