The third book in the highly successful "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. Over forty projects are presented through accessible, witty texts, with plans, drawings and photographs. There is a reference section that gives architect and project information. Like its predecessors, "XS Extreme" offers striking new ideas at a human scale that will inspire anyone keen to improve the world we build around ourselves.
