BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group is a New York and Copenhagen based group of architects, designers, builders and thinkers operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, of projects throughout Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes, not least due to the influence of multicultural exchange, global economic flows, and communication technologies that together require new ways of architectural and urban organization. Like a form of programmatic alchemy, BIG creates architecture by mixing conventional ingredients such as living, leisure, working, parking, and shopping; by hitting the fertile overlap between pragmatism and utopia, BIG finds the freedom to change the surface of our planet to better fit contemporary life forms.

Recently completed projects include the Danish Maritime Museum (2014), Superkilen Park (2013), Gammel Hellerup Multi-Use Hall (2012), Danish Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo (2010) and The 8 House (2010). BIG was recently distinguished with a National AIA Honor Award, Wall Street Journal’s Innovator of the Year Prize, and Architizer’s Firm of the Year Award. Work in North America includes buildings in New York City, Miami, San Francisco, Vancouver, and Washington DC. West 57th Street, an 80,000m2 mixed-use ‘courtscraper’ and BIG’s inaugural project in the
U.S, is currently under construction and slated for completion in 2015. The new LEGO Experience Center in Billund, Denmark and then Waste-to-Energy plant doubling as a ski-slope recently broke ground in Denmark to be completed by 2017.

West 57th Street

BIG’s inaugural project in NY is a hybrid between the European perimeter block and a traditional Manhattan high-rise, West 57th has a unique shape which combines the advantages of both: the compactness and effi ciency of a courtyard building providing density, a sense of intimacy and security, with the airiness and the expansive views of a skyscraper.
