San Rocco is a journal that publishes writing about buildings, drawings, projects, and built or drawn ideas from around the world. It is based on the idea that architecture is a collective knowledge and that this knowledge can take different forms within an architectural magazine – essays, illustrations, designs, etc. Each issue of the journal defines a field of interest through the presentation of a topic. This text reflects on the contents, means and methods of San Rocco. Structured as a series of short excerpts that cover different questions about the magazine, both practical and conceptual, it offers an overview of this journal’s position regarding the practice of architecture, its theory, its relation to history and the role of writing within the discipline.
