This book is an atlas of images, presenting projects that illustrate the transformations that have occurred in Genoa during the last 10 years. Franz Prati, Director of the Architecture department of the University of Genoa, is the author of this series of original, innovative, and explorative contemporary studies. Genoa can be considered as an advanced Italian ""architectural laboratory"" from different points of view. It is a place for occasions and events, whether you consider only the architecture or the town as a whole. Genoa is a platform for current architectural debates for understanding contemporary projects in Italy. This study presents many diverse and unique projects, enriched by conversations and theories.
