Back issue for magazine - Blueprint 288

Blueprint 288 Blueprint’s March issue celebrates experimentation and innovation in architecture and design. We showcase the world’s first printed building, featured on the cover, by Italian designer and inventor Enrico Dini in collaboration with architect Andrea Morgante. Tim Abrahams visited Dini’s Pisa workshop and was inspired by his personal story and adventurous ambition. Peter Kelly meets and profiles experimental New York-based architect Mas Yendo, whose work was recently exhibited in London. Yendo uses parts from model kits to create fantastical and dense structures that engage architecture with the human condition. Caroline Roux reports on the huge art fair Art Basel Miami Beach where she witnessed the collision of art, design and commerce. In Produce, editor Vicky Richardson meets several times Avant-Garde Hairdresser of the Year Angelo Seminara, who has gone well beyond the fringe by printing patterns onto hair.
Ambition is not always given the credit it deserves, however: the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, has been met with almost universal condemnation from the West rather than being celebrated as an amazing engineering feat. Tim Abrahams critiques the media coverage and suggests it reflects a lack of vision. Also in this issue; Gwen Webber says Modernism has lost its bottle; Owen Pritchard sees eye movements make graffiti art; Kevin McCullagh has a close shave in China; Reviews include the ‘Singapore Design Festival/ICSID 2009’ and ‘Less and More the Design Ethos of Dieter Rams’ exhibition; Vicky Richardson reviews The Museum of Innocence – A Novel by Orhan Pamuk; Patrick Tresset and Frederic Fol Leymarie present their drawing of Philip K Dick for Man and Machine.
