BOOKS OF COPIES
"Books of Copies" is a new project by San Rocco.
"Books of Copies" is an online database comprised of images that can be copied in order to produce architecture. As such, "Books of Copies" are receptacles of a collective form of knowledge that we can provisionally call "architecture".
"Books of Copies" are organized according to a precise set of rules and are produced by a multitude of producers. "Books of Copies" are based on an inherently derivative and collective effort, starting with the zero-degree act of accumulation of formal knowledge, namely "collecting".
Here you will find a short introductory text about the "Books of Copies" project.
San Rocco has been invited to contribute to the Museum of Copies, the show presented by FAT (London, UK) at the 13th International Architecture Biennale.
