Pin-Up Issue 35 – Environments

Select Title

Winter 2023/24

The word “environment” is often used in the same breath as sustainability, efficiency, and greenhouse gas emissions. An expanded definition of environments evokes a more profound sense of consciousness in the spaces in which we find ourselves; the objects and rituals we use as forms or tools of communication; and the terms of hierarchy — architectural and beyond. Our environments aren’t just the spaces we take up or the ones that surround us as the seasons change — they’re everything we see, say, and do.

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!
