Far from the accommodating clichés of the international architectural mainstream and the easy certainties of consolidated and repeated rhetoric, contemporary architecture in the Western Alps seems to be making its way with courage. As a translator of complex instances, it carves out small manoeuvring spaces in the plots of local socio-economic realities, bringing innovation in both ways and techniques and interpreting with critical rigour the peculiarities of territories and heritage. The works presented in this volume aim to fabricate a choral story, where architecture becomes a "built" testimony of the transformations taking place in the contemporary mountain territory: from the production of culture to the inhabiting practices, from facilities to landscape and heritage.
