Extreme Architecture: Building for challenging environments, by Ruth Slavid

Divided into five simply-titled chapters - Hot; Cold; High; Wet and Space - this details over forty contemporary built works which encounter tricky siting issues

Be it climate, terrain or programme, these buildings have something going against them. Pleasingly, Space really is of the intergalactic kind, offering an unusual insight into Spacestation architecture, both in and out of this world. This small but weighty companion is one for your coffee table, if you think it’s hard enough.

£26, Laurence King Publishing

  • Ms Slavid's first-hand experience of the outer reaches of the galaxy no doubt came in handy while penning this tome.

  • The Space Slavid is one serious inter-galactic operator. She boldly goes where no Space Slavid has been before. Move over W Shatner. And you, JL Pickard. The Space Slavid's in town.
