What was once a simple, Spartan hut in wood and metal sheeting, designed to shelter passing climbers, has today become a cutting edge structure. New forms of architecture high in the mountains seek a strong relationship with the landscape, deliberately contrasting with the environment, to the extent that the new refuges look like submarines, spaceships or the fuselage of airplanes. The film follows the planning of an alpine station that was to become the highest Eco-Hotel in the world, but also a ‘viewing machine’ capable of shaping the gaze of its guests.
