GI (Global Interior) #2
Latin America, 1972


Rare second issue from 1972 of this now classic 1970’s architectural series, the great GI (Global Interior) from Tokyo, Japan.
One of the finest interior architecture journal series ever published, GI “The Series of Global Interior” came from the producers of the highly esteemed GA (Global Architecture), GA Document, GA Houses, etc. architectural publications.

GI was produced throughout the 1970’s in a total of ten volumes. Each large volume highlighted a selection of architectural projects by renowned international architects, some volumes focusing on a specific architect entirely, and highlighted their work for houses and domestic spaces.

Beautiful architectural photography of house interiors, exteriors and room details of living spaces, along with texts (mostly in Japanese) and floor-plans/elevation drawings make up the profiles on each featured building or environment. The visual generosity of these handsomely designed and printed journals (each more a book than a magazine) make them a treasure for any architecture or interior design enthusiast or collector.

Edited and Presented by Yukio Futagawa

PIN-UP 14
Spring Summer 2013


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!

Issue 14 features:
Paulo Mendes Da Rocha, ROLU, Delfina Delettrez, Hans Kollhoff, PLUS a 60-page BRAZIL SPECIAL including a portfolio by Wolfgang Tillmans on the city São Paulo; a cinematic portrait of Rio by the artist Sarah Morris; a Hans Ulrich Obrist-led tour of Lina Bo Bardi’s luminous domestic masterpiece and former residence, the Casa de Vidro; and an insightful new take on Brasilia’s genesis and legacy by Richard Williams with photographs by Marcelo Krasilcic. As well as conversations with established and up-and-coming architects, artists and designers from all over Brazil, including an introduction to ten of the most exciting contemporary Brazilian architects.
Also:
An ethereal tour of Valerio Olgiati’s unbuilt wonders, a visit to legendary gay artist Tom of Finland’s Los Angeles sanctuary, a look inside Michael Capo’s auction house treasure palace, and a trip to Mozambique to revisit the life and work of the unbelievably prolific Portuguese architect Pancho Guedes. Also in the issue, Kate McCollough trawls Second Life cataloging traditional stair typologies and PIN–UP’s recommendations for the contemporary corporate environment. Plus a 15-page PIN–UP Board showcase including the PIN–UP Book Club, Norman Foster, Jerszy Seymour, Ken Price, Horrace Gifford, OMA for Knoll, FAUX/real, Adeline André, and so much more.
