Pin-Up Interviews is the first book produced by PIN-UP, the award-winning, New York-based, biannual architecture and design magazine. Cheekily dubbing itself the 'Magazine for Architectural Entertainment,' PIN-UP features interviews with architects, designers and artists, presenting their work informally as a fun assembly of ideas, stories and conversations. Everything is paired with cutting-edge photography and artwork.
