Small Architecture

$20.00

Over the years, talented architects have occasionally indulged themselves with the challenge of designing small but perfectly formed buildings. Whether in Japanese cities, where large sites are hard to come by, or at the frontier between art and architecture, small buildings present many advantages, and push their designers to do more with less.

A dollhouse for Calvin Klein in New York, a playhouse for children in Trondheim, vacation cabins, and housing for victims of natural disasters are all part of the new rush to develop the great small architecture of the moment. From world-famous names to the freshest new talent, come discover architectural invention on a whole new, small scale.
