Bringing together a challenging and entertaining digest of architecture, design and art, we ensure the uniquely Blueprint content is treated in that uniquely Blueprint manner — opinionated, contextual, forthright, acerbic, and often from a completely unexpected angle.
Readers are drawn in visually to the editorial content that entertains, informs, involves, provokes and surprises. Overall the feeling is considered and elegant yet often challenging. A Blueprint-curated version of the very best, most essential, exciting and entertaining content from around the world.
For this August edition we present our Bauhaus centenary issue, celebrating the creative talent and enduring legacy of the iconic school. Our coverage includes two special infographics exploring the people and products of the Bauhaus, a look at three new Bauhaus museums opening in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin — and we hear from 16 leading architects and designers on what the Bauhaus means to them and their work.
Elsewhere in the issue we head to the Swiss Alps to see Studio Seilern’s new world-class Andermatt Concert Hall (our cover star), to the Greek island of Delos to explore Antony Gormley’s sculptural takeover amid the classical ruins, and report from this year’s Venice Art Biennale. Back in the UK we sit down with creator of this year’s Serpentine Pavilion, Junya Ishigami, meet the emerging practice responsible for the Dulwich Pavilion, Pricegore, and give you an in-depth report on the rampant residential development changing Manchester. Plus: Carmody Groarke, BIG, Morris+Company, 3XN, Architects Declare and much more!
