Modern Architecture goes on Holiday, The Lidi di Mortelle in Sicily, a small linear city by the sea

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Sea resorts bring to the extreme the modern architecture restoration themes, due to the difficulty of preserving buildings which were never meant to last, and are particularly exposed both to harsh climatic conditions and to changes in social habits. The interest of this study lies in the possible demonstration that this holiday architecture typology, so fragile and recent, often regarded as secondary if compared to the ‘serious’ building types, should be the object of research and preservation as a privileged field of experimentalism for modern architecture.
