Bjarke Ingels, the internationally acclaimed Danish architect and founder and principal of BIG, will give a forum talk at Nordic Cool 2013, sharing to the audience his views on development and challenges of sustainable design.
Through a series of award-winning design projects, Bjarke and BIG have developed a reputation for designing buildings that are as programmatically and technically innovative as they are cost and resource conscious.
Like a form of programmatic alchemy, Bjarke and BIG create architecture by mixing conventional ingredients such as living, leisure, working and shopping to realize symbiotic synergies in the form of new, reproducible urban typologies.
Additionally Bjarke advocates the idea of "hedonistic sustainability," which presents sustainability as a design challenge rather than a moral dilemma.
Bjarke Ingels will discuss the development, challenges, and responses to sustainable design in public spaces.
