PIN-UP Magazine for Architectural Entertainment, Issue 12, The Berlin Special, Spring Summer 2012
The latest PIN-UP issue – The Berlin special – is with its 240 pages the biggest so far, simply because “there’s so much here to write about”, as creative director Felix Burrichter puts it. Spending three months exploring the city’s creative scene has come together in an extensive guide to Berlin’s past, present and future hot pot of architecture, art and design. Interview objects include established “starchitect” David Chipperfield, the curatorial director of this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale, as well as up-and-coming designer Clémence Seilles and multi-talented artist Andro Wekua. An exclusive portfolio by artist Katharina Grosse gives an intimate glimpse into her neon stained creative process of images, objects and spaces. It’s an issue bursting of raw energy and contradictions; beautiful and ugly, international and suburban, refined yet unpolished; just what makes Berlin what it is.
