In the fall semester 2009 at the Accademia di archittetura di Mendrisio each student was assigned, by lottery, a region of the world to study.

To start with, everybody presented the specific historical, climatic, political etc. conditions of their region in a short lecture. Then, through

an analytical process, students had to decide for the one building in their region they personally considered to be the most important and they

would defend and argue for, as if it were their own project. A first list of ten buildings per region, compiled by each student, was reduced to three

and finally to one single building. The entire decision process was based on a personal list of criteria which was individually elaborated during

the whole semester. Students were free to propose any building of any time, be it known or unknown, without restrictions: the only condition was

to argue with pure architectural thinking beyond any other kind of relevance or impressiveness. Each project has been fully described and

reduced to its essential idea with the help of a text, drawings and models.

The goal of this documentary is to share not only a collection of specific buildings from all around the globe, but also very personal statements

from future architects.
