“EXTREME ARCITECTURE” – An “Off The Shelf” Review
Building for Challenging Environments
by Ruth Slavid
ISBN-13: 978- 1-85669-609-8
The problems, and the thinking with design and technology applied to solutions, creatively and with imagination.
Hot and cold, both arid and humid.
High altitude, latitude and attitude, on land, on water, on ice.
In the ground, under water, in the clouds,
Arctic, antarctic, in space,on the moon and Mars.
To many this is a coffee table book and the photography is of that quality.
But it is much more.
This shows some of the leading edge of design, technology and engineering.
Articles range through built and tested environmental prototypes,
from special project construction and design, to future planning and pioneering concepts.
Some subject titles:
Concordia Station (Antarctica)
Moon Base Two
Mars Cruiser One
