To coincide with its current art exhibition—Pablo Bronstein: Enlightenment Discourse on the Origins of Architecture—REDCAT presents a lecture by Italian architect, writer and editor Pier Paolo Tamburelli on Monday, March 3 at 7:30 pm.

Tamburelli, who helped establish the forward-thinking, Milan-based baukuh architecture collective, also sits on the editorial board of San Rocco magazine. The publication has a distinct design viewpoint—encapsulated on its website:

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.

The eighth issue of San Rocco, “What’s wrong with the primitive hut?,” coincidentally addresses the origins of architecture from an artistic perspective, much like Bronstein’s exhibition. Tamburelli’s lecture promises to tie together the ideas surfaced in both the magazine and the art currently on view at REDCAT.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
