Unexpect is a monograph of the work of Michael Ryan Architects, a practice based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Written by Michael Ryan, it is far from being a conventional architectural monograph. Through storytelling, he takes a fresh and perceptive look at the work of the rm. Projects are documented with detailed photographic explorations and descriptions that embody Michael Ryan’s architectural vision, talent, and principles.

Also included is a comprehensive appendix of plans and elevations for each project. The monograph features the philosophy of the rm as well as a brief history of Michael Ryan’s education, career, and main influences. The firm’s collaborative approach is shown through the interior design work of Ryan’s wife, Randee Spelkoman. The introduction is written by the respected academic Gray Read who was a classmate of Ryan’s at the University of Pennsylvania.
