Back issue for magazine - Blueprint 284

Blueprint 284 Blueprint’s November issue was produced from the Wapping Project. The editorial team was itself on show as part of the exhibition ‘Design is Simply Complex’ during the London Design Festival. The three week residency is documented in ‘The Wapping Diaries’, which also features design studios Tracey Neuls, Ally Capellino and Van der Meersch & Weston.
Souto de Moura’s Casa Das Historias Paula Rego is the cover feature. Vicky Richardson travelled to Cascis, Portugal to visit the building as the area seeks to define a contemporary architectural heritage. As an exhibition of contemporary Polish architecture opens at RIBA, Peter Kelly finds that heritage and identity are some of the key issues that young Polish architects are addressing, using the soviet era architecture as a starting point for something new.We also take a look at the UK’s first Supreme Court which has been furnished by contemporary designers including Tomoko Azumi and Timorous Beasties. To coincide with the publication of nearly 30 years of sketchbooks, we show drawings by Nicholas Grimshaw, while Tim Abrahams met the architect to discuss the difference between technical drawing and expressive sketches, the importance of computers and his plans for the future. Also in this issue: Gian Luca Amadei visits the newly refurbished V&A ceramics galleries and meets the first artist-in-residence Steve Dixon; Paper City is drawn by Chris Orr – painter, draughtsman and Royal Academician; reviews include Stephen Bayley’s ‘Woman as design, Eduardo Paolozzi: The Jet Age Compendium at Raven Row and Cold War Neons and Socialist Modernity at The Lighthouse. In this issue: Tomoko Azumi; Timorous Beasties; Jonathan Clark; Richard Wilson; WWA Architects; Armin Blasbichler; Eduardo Souto De Moura; New Polish Architecture; Nicholas Grimshaw; Chris Orr.
