Built by the late XIX century, with no current use and no apparent potential for transformation, these constructions are silently disappearing. Victims of their frail materiality and of a lack of recognition of their cultural and patrimonial significance, not valuable enough for systematic study or documentation, once they are gone they never existed. This exercise aims to show that these constructions can produce very high-quality spacial experiences while maintaining an important built document of vernacular architecture, making them pertinent even after their agricultural use passes.
