Our friends from San Rocco has recently been awarded with the Icon Award Emerging architect of the year. It’s quite interesting that the award went to a publishing project instead to a tradicional practice, and we like to think that the term “paper architecture” is being revisited and start having meaning again.
Kieran Long wrote on Icon Eye about the prize:
“San Rocco represents something vital about contemporary architectural practice. The network of architects, graphic designers and photographers behind the modest, black-and-white covered publication has come together around shared interests that buck the prevailing tendencies of architecture and propose a new model of practice. And all of this in what is supposed to be a side project in a time of publishing’s decline [...] Most interesting is how the magazine generates its content, through a call for papers in every issue, asking readers to contribute to the next according to a set theme.”
We leave you here with a brief conversation we had with San Rocco at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice.
