Description

Architect and professor of architecture Richard Horden, a former partner of Norman Foster, is the pioneer of small-scale structures constructed with the most advanced materials and techniques available. Fusing high-tech engineering with industrial-design methods, he and his research students in Munich have created an innovative range of revolutionary buildings in a broad variety of settings.From the Ski Haus (delivered to the Alps by helicopter and used by mountaineering and rescue teams) and Antarctic living modules to the Micro Compact home, a fully self-contained pre-fab home that fits into a 2.65 m2 cube, these structures are designed for their adaptability to our changing planet, lifestyles and basic human needs. The book contains forty projects that draw on technologies from the nautical and aviation industries, as well as natural forms, to make small buildings that are not only highly functional but kind to the environment. This book will be essential reading for designers and architects working at any scale.
