Japan Architect and other vintage magazines
Felix Burrichter, creator of PIN-UP, "a magazine for architectural entertainment," is smitten with sex and architecture magazines. From Playboy, Playgirl and Butt to l'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui, Casabella and Japan Architect, he loves them all. Burrichter writes an essay in defense of the printed magazine in one of the those really thick magazines that is shoved into the Sunday New York Times. For some reason, I don't have mine today, just the regular magazine and all the other goodies in the Sunday Times. However, you must read the Burrichter essay and then go to Clip/Stamp/Fold, a website documenting a Princeton University show on vintage architecture magazines from the 1960s and 1970s. After you've done, come back here and tell me what post-metabolism means.
