Monographic architecture journal, each edition presents a specific topic, which may be the work of an architect, a group of buildings in a particular place or type, such as homes or museums. "Monolito" is a cultural magazine, and non-technical intended not only to architects, but also to all readers interested in the subject. Editor in chief is Fernando Serapião and the editorial board includes professionals linked to culture, but with an interest in architecture: André Corrêa do Lago a diplomat, architecture critic and member of the Design Committee of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in Nova York; Agnaldo Farias, art critic and professor of the FAU/USP, curator of the 29ª Bienal de Artes de São Paulo; Carlos Wendel Magalhães diretor of Cinemateca Brasileira; Cristiano Mascaro, a photographer and Mauro Munhoz, architect and General Director of Casa Azul, the company in charge of organizing the Festa Literária de Paraty (Flip). This number is dedicated to architect Angelo Bucci. Founded in 2003 by Bucci, SPBR is one of Brazil's most promising new generation architectural firms. His projects are characteristic for the contraposition of the lower and upper floors. "Amongst the critics of architecture there is almost a consensus that Bucci's work reverberates elements of the "São Paulo School" (or also São Paulo Brutalism), and architectural trend that emerged in the 1950's and early 1960's. If the mentor of this movement was Vilanova Artigas, Paulo Mendes da Rocha was its main author. The "São Paulo School" rested on a progressive political speech which believed in the social and transforming function of the architect." --Page 27. Contents: Perfil.
