Bjarke Ingels - BIG
BIG has worked on numerous projects all over the world, all sharing a visionary view and an interest in innovative theories about contemporary society and lifestyles.
Its two offices in Copenhagen and New York bring together professionals from all over the world, promoting cultural exchange as a source of wealth in design.
The group’s expertise ranges from architecture to design, from concept creation to engineering.
The studio also explores new disciplines bounding on architecture, stimulating research and coming up with new perspectives on the cities we will live in in years to come. Digital representation technologies are seen not as an end in themselves but as a means of achieving these goals. Society, economics and ecology are the themes dearest to Bjarke Ingels and his team, addressed in every one of his projects.
Ingels began his career working at OMA with Rem Koolhaas; in 2001 he co-founded PLOT (Julien De Smedt and Bjarke Ingels).
In his academic career, Ingels has been visiting professor at Rice University School of Architecture and at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation of Columbia University and visiting professor at Harvard University.
In 2004 he was awarded a Golden Lion at the Biennale in Venice for his Stavanger Concert House, and the following year he won the Forum AID Award for his VM homes.
The Mountain housing development, which made Bjarke Ingels famous all over the world, has received countless awards including the World Architecture Festival Housing Award, the Forum Aid Award and the MIPIM Residential Development Award.
