Bjarke Ingels, born in 1974, is a Danish architect and founder of his namesake frim, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). He is also the co-founder, together with Jens Martin Skibsted and Lars Larsen, of design consultancy KiBiSi. Ingels early works were for clients in Europe and the Middle East, but business in the United States is increasing. VIA, an apartment building being developed by the Durst Organization -- located on the West Side Highway at 57th Street and is shaped like a pyramid -- was one of Ingels first New York City commissions. His firm also won the commission to design Two World Trade Center at 200 Greenwich Street, tentatively scheduled for completion in 2020 and intended to house anchor tenants 21st Century Fox and News Corp. In 2010, Fast Company magazine ranked Ingels as one of the 100 most creative people in business for that year and in 2011, the Wall Street Journal named Ingels the Innovator of the Year for architecture. Ingels received degrees from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and the Escola Tècnica Superior d'Arquitectura in Barcelona. As of September 2015, he lived in New York. -MK
