Creating a 224-page architectural monograph is no easy task. The stakes are raised even higher when the featured architect is constantly challenging preconceived notions of what a house can be with inspired, unexpected designs. So when we began sketching out ideas for the book and the story we wanted to tell, we knew we too had to challenge what a monograph could look and feel like. The book had to capture and reflect the culture and spirit of MRA. And it had to do so in its own beautiful, inspired, unexpected ways. In the end, we created UNEXPECT: The Works of Michael Ryan Architects. Published by Oscar Riera Ojeda, it is now available for purchase in specialty book stores around the globe, or directly from michaelryanarchitects.com. Grab a copy, leave behind what you think you know about monographs, or architecture for that matter, and just let go.
