This book not only documents ten projects developed over a five-year period, on the occasion of several architecture competitions. Their conception and form cannot in fact be abstracted from the context of their production. As evidence of the complex themes emerging in contemporary territorial, environmental and architectural transformations; and also of a method to face them starting from an extensive cooperation, from the comparison between different vocations, interests and disciplinary cultures; that only an extended group is able to practice in order to overcome the authorial approach, particularly common in the field of architectural design. Another key to the book are the introductory essays: three authors, three different generations, introspections separated by time gaps of great importance in a world in such rapid change. Reflections connected by a fil rouge that reads the project in its complexity: the production of the project and of the buildings as an intrinsic category in order to dispel an involution of the profession that moves away from the specific disciplinary field. As Gregotti warns «Architecture, it is well known, is a collective art par excellence not only because it needed to discuss what Lukács called the social task, but because its long development through design and (sometimes) construction moves within a fabric of collaborative relationships: like the cinematographic work, for example. Of course there is also a strong Gropiusian ideological component in the idea of architectural work as team work»
