Book of Copies is a database comprised of images that may be copied in order to produce architecture.

Book of Copies is organized according to a precise set of rules and is produced by a multitude of producers. Book of Copies is based on an inherently derivative and collective effort, starting with the zero-degree act of accumulation of formal knowledge, namely “collecting”.
