After describing his interest in flat ontology and how a building hits the ground, Tom Wiscombe discusses surfaces becoming volumes, illustrating different strategies with projects including the Busan Opera House (2011), and the MOCA pavilion (2013). Under the category of Objects wrapped in objects Wiscombe talks about his Urban Beach for P.S. 1 (2003), the National Library for the Czech Republic (2007), the redevelopment of docks in Kaohsiung (2010), and a housing project for New Rochelle (2013). Wiscombe concludes with a discussion of projects that explore tattooing, Lo Monaco House, Lugano (2012), the Diamond City scheme for Adelaide (2013), and the National Center for Contemporary Arts in Moscow (2013).
