Pin-up welcomes Warren Taylor of The Narrows as curator for Graphic Architecture. The exhibition features local and international contributions of resonant printed material connected to the file of architecture. Curated as a series of ‘clusters’, the collection reveals key moments where the relationship between architecture and the printed form have combined to communicate and explicit architectural intent beyond the traditional boundaries of the profession.
The material collates a diverse range of work – each with an overt gesture drawn from an architectural language and positioned through a sophisticated graphic manner – and sourced from the Architectural Association London, Experimental Jetset, Karel Martens, Fabio Ongarato Design, Archigram, Tomato, AMO, Harry Williamson, Clement Meadmore, Chase & Galley and more.
Pin-up is a new, independent architecture and design gallery, project and event space housed within one of Melbourne’s most vibrant creative precincts. Firmly engaged with promoting local debate yet with an international outlook, Pin-up is dedicated to exhibiting, communicating and promoting architecture and design in an accessible, responsive and inspirational environment.
Pin-up is an initiative of Something Together, founded by Fleur Watson, Curator and former Editor of Monument Magazine, and Martyn Hook, Architect and Melbourne Editor of AR Magazine. Something Together is a creative studio focused on presenting architecture and design in an intelligent and accessible way through the design, curation and production of exhibitions, events and publications. Joining Fleur and Martyn on Pin-up is Emma Telfer, Partner and Marketing Communications Lead.
Pin-up takes its name from a studio approach where designers ‘pin up’ their design process in order to reveal ideas through presenting them to others and, in turn, develop a richer, more meaningful understanding of the importance of investing in quality architecture and design.
