For nearly two decades the architecture firm Weiss/Manfredi has practiced outside the traditional boundaries of architecture. Their work with complex sites and programs benefits from an interdisciplinary approach and a dynamic integration of architecture, art, infrastructure, and landscape design.Surface/Subsurfacepresents nine major projects that have been completed since their first monographSite Specific, published in 2000. Their design process exemplary of the best contemporary architectural practices reveals potential in subsurface conditions with the goal of generating an entirely new language for the surface. Projects include the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle, which wanders over a highway and train lines; the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, New York, which manipulates the movement of water, cars, and visitors; and the Smith College Campus Center in Northampton, Massachusetts, which transforms the brick campus into a luminous terracotta surface. Each project is fully documented through project photographs, drawings, details, and texts.

David Leatherbarrow is Professor of Architecture and Chairman of the Graduate Group in Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania.

Mohsen Mostafavi is the director of the Architectural Association in London.
