Blueprint Magazine Issue 346

In this issue, we take a look inside Santiago Calatrava’s latest building, a transit hub at the heart of the World Trade Center, which features a pair of white, steel-ribbed wings that dramatically soar 50m into the sky. Also taking flight, we revisit Eero Saarinen’s sculptural TWA airport terminal in New York and reveal the winner of our #verticalview photography competition with Ecophon. We take a tour of the longest building in Paris, Entrepôt Macdonald, where 15 architects including Kengo Kuma and Christian de Portzamparc have collaborated; meet artist Pablo Bronstein as his new commission for London’s Tate Britain opens; profile a group of young, emerging architects who are making waves in the Norwegian city of Trondheim, and visit Hastings Pier, restored by dRMM following a fire that ravaged its structure in 2010. We also go mad for Brutalism, previewing two books by self-confessed concrete aficionados and share our own all-time favourite Brutalist buildings. Elsewhere, we bring you the best design from Milan’s Salone del Mobile, remember Zaha Hadid, reminisce with Ron Arad and preview this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale.
