San Rocco is a magazine about architecture. San Rocco does not solve problems. It is not a useful magazine. San Rocco is neither serious nor friendly. San Rocco is written by architects. As such, San Rocco is not particularly intelligent, or philologically accurate.

In San Rocco, pictures are more important than texts. San Rocco is serious. It takes the risk of appearing naive. San Rocco will not last for ever. There will be no more than 20 San Roccos for the single five-year plan.

In this issue: “What's Wrong with the Primitive Hut?” talks about architecture as a technology not of shelter but of memory, one in which the subject that builds is not the individual but society. It contests the ideas that private architecture should be the model for public architecture, that pragmatism ought to come before ritual and that structure should come before space.
