Forgotten Architecture

Forgotten Architecture was founded as a Facebook group on May 28, 2019, to share, in a virtual space, forgotten or overshadowed projects in Europe and the rest of the world. The idea behind Forgotten Architecture is simple: to recover projects by little-known architects and works left in the shadows of the masters, to delve into the work of "minor" figures, and to unite alternative takes on the History of Architecture as a complement to university courses.

Forgotten Architecture now becomes a book, maintaining its distinctive features of a collective, dynamic, and horizontal experience born on a social network. Ephemeral architecture, gas stations, discos, vacation resorts, houses, and playgrounds: the publication uses the architectural categories most frequently featured in the group as guiding themes, providing for each project a collection of photographic material, documents, and drawings from professional firms, private archives, and institutions.

The book, published by NERO Editions and edited by Bianca Felicori, is produced thanks to the support of the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Italian Ministry of Culture under the Italian Council program (12th edition, 2023), and is sponsored by RESIDENZA 725 —shopping universe, land of culture.
