Just back from Louisville, where I attended the Idea Festival where Bjarke Ingels of BIG spoke about his firm and the Designs on the Future City
info on the speaker
Bjarke is an eloquent speaker, and the work of BIG impressively melds concept, formal analysis into built form. It was a treat to attend the festival.
Later we had drinks with him to further pinch his brain about his work and the state of architecture.Correction on the spelling of the principal's name.
