‘Stylish and informative’ – The Architects’ Journal

This book is a celebration of the small, the compact, the unexpected little buildings we encounter in the landscape or cityscape that give us pause to ponder their meaning or that make us appreciate the elegance of their creation. From the spectrum of functions and styles of these structures, it is clear that size imposes no limits on creativity and utility is no constraint to beauty.

Thinking small can be a wonderfully constructive exercise – and it can even bring a little joy.
