Pin-Up Issue 36 – Under Construction

Select Title

Summer 2024

Construction is not just about physical structures; it’s about the intangible spaces we inhabit — the realms of imagination, creativity, and possibility. It’s about those who dare to challenge the status quo and redefine the boundaries of what is possible. This issue is by and about those whose minds are perpetually building.

The only biannual Magazine for Architectural Entertainment

PIN–UP is a magazine that captures an architectural spirit, rather than focusing on technical details of design, by featuring interviews with architects, designers, and artists, and presenting work as an informal work in progress – a fun assembly of ideas, stories and conversations, all 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 those areas connect with contemporary art. In short, PIN–UP is pure architectural entertainment!
