“Art doe­sn’t tea­ch us any­thing apart from the mea­ning of life” de­cla­red Hen­ry Mil­ler. It cer­tain­ly feels li­ke the mea­ning of life is en­cap­su­la­ted bet­ween the walls of the “inhabited sculptures” de­si­gned by Mas­si­mi­lia­no Fuk­sas for Is Molas, a golf resort on one of mo­st spec­ta­cu­lar stret­ches of Sar­di­nia’s sou­th-we­stern coa­stli­ne about 30 ki­lo­me­tres ou­tsi­de Ca­glia­ri. Per­ched on the bor­der bet­ween San­ta Mar­ghe­ri­ta di Pu­la and Ca­po Teu­la­da, the com­plex is an ho­ma­ge to the area, its history and its na­tu­re.

“Is Molas is an ex­pe­ri­men­tal pro­ject and that ex­pe­ri­ment in­vol­ved try­ing to work with the ele­men­ts them­sel­ves, with wind ero­sion and na­tu­re,” says the ar­chi­star who heads Stu­dio Fuk­sas with his wife Do­ria­na, who is al­so an art hi­sto­rian. “That’s why the pro­ject looks ero­ded, li­ke it was sha­ped by the wind. The lo­cal area is the pri­ma­ry ele­ment, so the buil­dings we­re de­ve­lo­ped by adap­ting them to the natural li­nes of the moun­tai­nous land­sca­pe”.

Fuk­sas has crea­ted four dif­fe­rent vil­la ty­pes for the resort Fuk­sas ( Vil­la Pa­las, Vil­la Lu­xi, Vil­la Nea and Vil­la Are­na­da), ea­ch one of whi­ch is uni­que in terms of its shape, di­men­sions and fi­ni­sh. The vil­las are al­so ge­nui­ne exam­ples of bio­ar­chi­tec­tu­re as they are built using pre­do­mi­nan­tly natural and lo­cal­ly-sour­ced ma­te­rials. “We es­sen­tial­ly crea­ted a new geo­gra­phy with Is Molas,” con­ti­nues the ar­chi­tect. “Everything slo­ts per­fec­tly in­to the land­sca­pe and is open to dia­lo­guing with the Me­di­ter­ra­nean light and the re­mai­ning tra­ces of the area’s ci­vi­li­sa­tions. The vil­las don’t fol­low any ri­gid ali­gn­men­ts

«L’ar­te non in­se­gna nul­la, tranne il sen­so del­la vi­ta», so­ste­ne­va Hen­ry Mil­ler. E il sen­so del­la vi­ta sem­bra rac­chiu­so pro­prio qui, tra i mu­ri di que­ste “scul­tu­re abi­ta­te” che Mas­si­mi­lia­no Fuk­sas ha di­se­gna­to per Is Molas, il golf resort si­tua­to in uno dei trat­ti più af­fa­sci­nan­ti del­la co­sta sud oc­ci­den­ta­le del­la Sar­de­gna (a 30 km da Ca­glia­ri), al con­fi­ne tra la lo­ca­li­tà di San­ta Mar­ghe­ri­ta di Pu­la e Ca­po Teu­la­da. Un omag­gio a un ter­ri­to­rio, al­la sua sto­ria e al­la sua na­tu­ra, an­che ar­chi­tet­to­ni­ca.

«Is Molas è un pro­get­to spe­ri­men­ta­le e l’espe­ri­men­to con­si­ste nel cer­ca­re di la­vo­ra­re con gli ele­men­ti, con l’ero­sio­ne del ven­to e con la na­tu­ra», spie­ga l’ar­chi­star, al­la gui­da del­lo Stu­dio Fuk­sas, in­sie­me al­la mo­glie Do­ria­na, ar­chi­tet­to e sto­ri­ca dell’ar­te. «Per­tan­to que­sto in­ter­ven­to as­su­me la for­ma di mas­sa ero­sa e con­for­ma­ta dal ven­to, do­ve le aper­tu­re so­no ca­vi­tà, do­ve fa­sci im­prov­vi­si di lu­ce pe­ne­tra­no da fes­su­re o da gran­di lu­cer­na­ri per ba­gna­re la ma­te­ria dei cor­pi. Il ter­ri­to­rio è l’ele­men­to pri­ma­rio, le co­stru­zio­ni quin­di si svi­lup­pa­no adat­tan­do­si al­le li­nee dell’oro­gra­fia na­tu­ra­le per pre­ser­var­la sen­za mo­di­fi­ca­re l’an­da­men­to na­tu­ra­le del ter­re­no».

Quat­tro le ti­po­lo­gie di vil­le idea­te da Fuk­sas (vil­la Pa­las, vil­la Lu­xi, vil­la Nea e vil­la Are­na­da), tut­te dif­fe­ren­ti per for­ma, di­men­sio­ne e fi­ni­tu­re; so­no ve­ri e pro­pri esem­pi di bio­ar­chi­tet­tu­ra crea­ti pre­va­len­te­men­te con ma­te­ria­li di ori­gi­ne na­tu­ra­le e di pro­du­zio­ne lo­ca­le. «Con Is Molas ab­bia­mo co­strui­to una nuo­va geo­gra­fia», con­ti­nua l’ar­chi­tet­to. «Tut­to è per­fet­ta­men­te in­se­ri­to nel pae­sag­gio, 131
