PIN–UP magazine captures an architectural spirit rather than focusing on technical details of design. PIN-UP magazine is interviewing architects, designers, and artists, and presenting work as an informal work in progress, a fun assembly of ideas, stories and conversations paired with cutting-edge photography and artwork. Both raw and glossy, the magazine is a nimble mix of genres and themes, finding inspiration in the high and the low by casting a refreshingly playful eye on rare architectural gems, amazing interiors, smart design, and that fascinating area where these areas connect with contemporary art. In short, PIN–UP magazine is pure architectural entertainment!
