BJARKE INGELS ARCHITECT

BJARKE INGELS ARCHITECT

By Christian K. Narkiewicz-Laine
 
Winner of The European Prize for Architecture in 2010, the 39-year old Danish Architect, Bjarke Ingels has burst into the global architecture scene with robust exuberance. 
 
The firm known as BIG has broken Denmark’s good-old boy network challenging a constipated establishment to think outside a boring box. In the last decade, the firm has challenged Europe’s mundane status quo.  Ingels is also a leading force in Europe’s Green Architecture movement producing astonishing and exemplary works of sustainable design.  He has inspired Europe’s emerging young generation—of which he is apart—to push for new architecture beyond the pale fringe.
 
This monograph on Bjarke Ingels documents his astonishing rise from a young architecture student educated in Copenhagen and Barcelona to projects in China, Korea, Azerbaijan, Greenland, Mexico, Taiwan, Albania, Estonia, Germany, Kazakhstan, United Arab Emirates, Canada, and the United States.
