PIN–UP Magazine captures an architectural spirit 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 paired with cutting-edge photography and artwork. Both raw and glossy, the biannual New York-based 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!
