Abstract


The Flowerssori project is the outcome of the long intellectual search of two architects who have decided to make a fresh start involving the ethics of the real, and to place their bets on the future, that is on children. The feel for nature and the fascination exerted by the world of Maria Montessori were both consequential of and synergetic with the determination to develop a new type of environment.
