Blueprint Magazine Issue 330

£30.00 (no VAT)

In issue #330 we mark our 30th anniversary by looking back over the last three decade and talking again to some of our illustrious cover stars including (in alphabetical order!): David Adjaye; Ron Arad; Neville Brody; Nigel Coates; Terence Conran; Terry Farrell; Norman Foster; Thomas Heatherwick; Marc Newson; Paul Smith and Richard Rogers.

Author Philip Pullman looks at Soviet era children’s graphics, while Mecanoo’s Birmingham library comes under the Blueprint spotlight. There’s a breathtaking photo-essay tracking the movements of Hugh Broughton Architects’ Antarctic Halley VI research unit, and we invite Kengo Kuma to reflect on his personal evolution as an internationally renowned architect. From art and design, we have an interview with cerebral artists Elmgreen & Dragset, whose exhibition opens at the V&A in October. We also take a look at what’s on the drawing boards at Herzog de Meuron, consider Portugal in our post-recession architecture series, Owen Hatherley throws in his tuppence on the ‘real’ Olympic legacy, and we interview media theorist McKenzie Wark.

All this and much more squeezed into 268 fully redesigned pages.
