Formgiving: An Architectural Future History

Formgiving - An Architectural Future History

Formgiving: An Architectural Future History is a visionary attempt to look at the horizon of time. The Danish word for 'design' is 'formgiving,' which literally means to give form to that which has not yet taken shape. In other words, to give form to the future. Architecture plays a special role by proposing spaces for our lives that are fragments of the future in the making. Throughout more than 700 pages, Bjarke Ingels presents his personal selection of projects, including the 12,000-square-meter LEGO House in Denmark, the human-made ecosystems floating on oceans, the redesign of a World War II bunker into a contemplative museum, and the ski slope-infused power plant celebrating Copenhagen's commitment to carbon neutrality.
