This revision of our long-standing title shows that portable buildings are eminently feasible, are capable of a wide range of roles, as well as being economic to build and operate. Kronenberg provides technical and design detail through a series of high profile works - showcasing the very best and diverse range of portable architecture, proving it can be subversive as well as sensitive, amusing as well as appropriate, energetic and economic.
