Monograph.it is a unique contemporary magazine that combines monography and review. Each volume follows an original structure, although all devote several pages to the study of architecture. Accompanying these case studies are galleries flush with places, buildings, and landscapes; when combined with detailed studies focussing on cities in evolution, Monograph.it encourages its readers to conceive of urbanisation and landscape as mutually complementary. The aim of this is to provide a comprehensive overview that acknowledges differing development-speeds of architectural productions, across a variety of scales. An ongoing project, this survey will be summarised in 'Researches' (a chapter to be published in the next issue). This will stress the importance of encouraging innovation in students of architecture. Monograph.it acts as a platform for theoretical debate, conducting interviews and hosting essays from big-name figures in the architecture world - for example, the firm featured in this issue. Camillo Botticini have created many resplendent built environments, with a geometric modish style that unifies aestheticism with ease of navigation.
Their designs centre around the satisfying yet brutalist shape of a square. Provoking and bold, their work is as ultra-modernist as it is unusual.
