Architecture that re-imagines the world

It’s easy to see that Bjarke Ingels is creative and passionate about architecture. His designs are amazing and his ideas are breath taking.

Ingels is a “Next Lister” because his vision and his approach to design are changing the way we think about the world as it is.

To Ingels, buildings are more than just monuments. They are part of an ever evolving landscape. Each one is a unique challenge with problems to solve but also an opportunity to add value or beauty to lives of the people who will live in them or work in them every day.

He tackles the challenge with intelligence, intensity, humor and heart. Bjarke Ingels has big ideas about the future of architecture and isn’t afraid to pursue them. But he’s an agent of change because he is challenging us to re-think what architecture can do for society and re-imagine the world as it could be...a little bit more like our dreams.

Take a look at our profile of Bjarke Ingels, another great agent of change.

    I think these designs are absolutely wonderful! In the beginning everybody thaught Zaha Hadid her architectural designs were impossible to make, did she prove them wrong! 🙂

    I think enoryeve is assuming it won't happen because it looks like a student project. But how exciting it will be if it does. Certainly will be unique and it's very ambitious for a government to commission such a building.
