"Book of Copies is a database comprised of images that may be copied in order to produce architecture. As such, Book of Copies is a receptacle of a collective form of knowledge that we can provisionally call “architecture”. Book of Copies is organized according to a precise set of rules and is produced by a multitude of producers. Book of Copies is based on an inherently derivative and collective effort, starting with the zero-degree act of accumulation of formal knowledge, namely “collecting”. The complete series of San Rocco Book of Copies in one collection of 5 volumes for a total of 4120 pages.."
