Architectural design is not limited by geographical, economic or political boundaries. However, the majority of the architecture brought to the world's attention tends to be concentrated in a few countries and located in the wealthier nations of Europe and North America. This title of Architectural Design seeks to present recent architecture that is situated beyond these familiar boundaries and outside the customary centres of architectural debate. It focuses on architecture that positively benefits from being at the periphery. By presenting work from countries as diverse as Iceland, Guinea, Canada, Portugal, Chile, New Zealand and India, it highlights buildings designed to respond to climatic extremes, remote sites and a broad range of social settings. It also identifies architects who are exploring the potential of materials and limited resources. This work has not only been sought out for attention, but is documented and connected through interviews with selected architects and international contributors who are designing, researching and building at the edge.
Off the Radar is the product of a year's original research and travelling that the guest-editors, Brian Carter and Annette LeCuyer, undertook while on sabbatical from the University of Michigan during 2001 and 2002. Prior to having taken up academic appointments in the US in 1994, Carter and LeCuyer were both architects working in practices in London. The authors of several books, their work has also been published in numerous international professional journals. In January 2003 they joined the faculty at the State University of New York in Buffalo where Brian Carter is Dean of the School of Architecture and Urban Planning and Annette LeCuyer is a Professor of Architecture.
