From Facebook to the pages of a book, this is the story of a group that has brought together little-known architects’ projects and masters’ works that have remained in the shadows.

Ephemeral architectures, service stations, discos, tourist resorts, houses, and playgrounds: the publication uses the group’s most recurring architectural categories as guiding themes, providing a collection of photographic material, documents, and drawings from professional studios, private archives, and institutions for each project.
