"Simple and a bit trivial, I would say almost predictable and always the same"

... Is what a famous Italian song recites referring to men and love.

But if you look at these wooden towers made in a series of 5, pompously defined by the author as "pavilions", perhaps we could borrow these same verses!

Everything is reduced to a minimum: space, energy consumption, construction costs, maintenance costs and, I would add, architectural value.

Nevertheless the project carried out by LVPH Architectes is one of the top favourites in January from the readers of europaconcorsi.com. Perhaps the reasons are many; probably all linked to the architectural trend of an excessive and unjustified minimalism.

Lets reflect: isn’t it time to relearn how to conceive a living space as a place of intimacy as well as a sanctuary of our unique perception of beauty?
