San Rocco es una revista que publica artículos sobre edificios, dibujos, proyectos e ideas, construidas o dibujadas, de todo el mundo. Se basa en la idea de que la arquitectura es un conocimiento colectivo y que este conocimiento puede tomar formas diferentes en una revista de arquitectura —ensayos, ilustraciones, diseños, etc.—. Cada edición de la revista define un campo de interés por medio de la presentación de un tema. Este texto reflexiona sobre el contenido, el medio y el método de San Rocco. Estructurado como una serie de extractos cortos que cubren temas diferentes acerca de la revista, tanto prácticos como conceptua- les, ofrece una visión acerca de la posición de la revista sobre la práctica de la arquitectura, su relación con la historia y el rol de la escritura dentro de la disciplina.
San Rocco, drawings, axonometric, history of architecture, architectural theory
