PIN–UP, the magazine that views architecture and likewise design disciplines as pure entertaiment. It aims to capture an architectural spirit, rather than focusing on technical details. It happily features interviews with architects, designers, and artists and presents work as a fun assembly of ideas, stories and conversations. PIN-UP is always on the lookout for rare architectural gems, amazing interiors, smart design, and the link with contemporary art.
In this new issue a list creative pro’s: architects Carla Juacaba, breaking the mold of the Brazilian architecture scene, and Wolfgang Tillmans who delivers a tender homage to the everyday built environment. And there is more: Tom Hancocks’ ode to symmetry, a series of color-coded design crushes, a beautiful bouquet of the most common bodega flowers, photographed by Maurice Scheltens and Liesbeth Abbenes, a petite yet well-appointed party pad in Paris by gallerist Daniele Balice. To name a few features of this 250-page magazine.
And all of this is adorned with a 40-page Norway Special photographed by Benjamin Alexander Huseby, and Seven Portraits, a supplement in collaboration with the artist David Hartt and the IIT College of Architecture, introducing the nominees of the inaugural Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize.
This is architecture in its broadest sense, and for sure a lot of entertainment.
