by Diana Budds It might be an understatement to say that Bjarke Ingels' firm the Bjarke Ingels Group (B.I.G.) has gone gangbusters. In a climate where much new construction is being delayed indefinitely and architecture firms are shrinking in size, B.I.G. was recently awarded three high-profile contracts: The Greenland National Gallery of Art, Copenhagen's future 700-million-dollar waste to energy plant, and their first project in North America, a 600-unit residential building on West 57th Street in Manhattan. We caught up with Ingels right before he gave the keynote speech at the Global Green Cities Symposium last Thursday. He briefed us on his recent projects, how New York is becoming more and more like Copenhagen, and why "Bigamy" could be the next great concept in design.
