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.
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.
