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.
The world of sensory design is our focus for this June 2018 issue — from architecture that supports those with visual impairments to experiential design that engages your tastebuds. Leading architects from around the world — including David Adjaye, Odile Decq and Thomas Heatherwick — speak exclusively to Blueprint about their approach to designing for the senses. We also head to Nimes to review Elizabeth de Portzamparc’s Musée de la Romanité, encased in a shimmering ‘floating veil’ facade, and visit Asif Khan’s immersive, sensory pavilion in South Korea. Elsewhere in the issue, we speak to Grafton Architects co-founders Shelley McNamara and Yvonne Farrell about curating this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale and review OMA’s first Danish project, Blox.
