Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Build-On is a collection of phenomenal architectural transformations that bring new life and function to existing structures. Exceptional examples of large-scale radical renovations and adaptations of industrial wasteland, bunkers, abandoned churches and forsaken rural centres are featured along with creative transformations of smaller building units in the urban and rural context.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Architectural porn is the only way to describe this book. It has tons of gorgeous full color photos and I've been enjoying the hell out of it. If you want a more detailed how-to account of how everything is built, this may not suit your purposes. It's much more visual, than instructive, but that's exactly what I wanted.
