The volume concerns the new summer houses builded in an area in front of the pine wood which defines the skyline of Spotorno. The project is articulated in a number of simple terraced volumes that follow the morphologic development of the surroundings, as well as the typical east-west orientation of Ligurian villages. The building elements are fragmented and arranged so as to follow the slopes created by reconstructing the topography of the hill.
The monograph is the 7th volume of the ONE series. It is in a bilingual Italian/English edition and presents a complete description of the work, through a technical details and an esplicative text that with photographs and technical drawings allow an in-depth understanding of the project.
An essay by Cesare Piva introduces the project and a presentation about the activities of the practice, through bio-bibliographical notes, and a brief list of the works, concludes the volume.
