This issue of OASE takes for its title Scratching the Surface. Its intent, in the broadest sense, is to address the relationship (in architecture) between surface and visuality, surface and image, or image and substance; a thematic that is increasingly coming under scrutiny in certain architectural discourses. The issue should be taken as speculative research on the phenomena of surface and depth in architecture (as either counterpoints or corollaries), in light of contemporary theory. Rather than offering a range of programmatic statements postulating definitive perspectives and solutions, it simply traces the outline of a new area of theory.
