Description

The third book in the XS series, XS Extreme considers buildings at the edge of possibility. Sited in remote locations, built to withstand wild climatic conditions, or conceptually daring or provocative, all the structures are original, innovative and instructive.

Over40 projects are presented through accessible, witty texts, with plans, drawings and photographs. A reference section gives architect and project information. Like its precedessors, XS Extreme offers striking new ideas at a human scale that will inspire anyone keen to improve the world we build around ourselves.
