The puckish Danish architect Bjarke Ingels has built his career on defying convention and distancing himself from his peers. He is 39 years old, founder of a company pretentiously and provocatively called BIG and is on his definite way to becoming one of the world’s most innovative and successful contemporary architects. According to The Wall Street Journal he has ‘rapidly become one of the design world’s biggest stars’. Bjarke Ingels’ ambitions are extremely high. He wants to build the most significant and memorable building of his era. Even though he is currently building a spectacular skyscraper in New York he longs to design a building that can truly be considered as one of the great buildings in the world–a building that will shape the future of architecture. Nothing less. Nothing is impossible.
