    From the December issue: Bjarke Ingels, the principal architect of BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), must get tired of people marveling about his relative youth. Even today at 42, an age when most of his peers still labor in total obscurity, the Danish designer shines out as a star, with more commissions in the works than most established architects see in their entire careers. Plans for his first project in New York, VIA 57 West — a daring pyramid-shaped residential tower along the West Side Highway — made him an overnight sensation back in 2012. [more]

  • From the Los Angeles website: The Gallo family and V.E. Equities are teaming up for a 30-story megaproject along the L.A. River, which would be designed by Bjarke Ingels. The mixed-use project, which would be the Danish architect’s first project in Los Angeles, would include 250 rental units, two boutique hotels and 800,000 square feet of office space, with retail and restaurants on the ground floor.

    To see renderings of the proposed project, watch the video here.

    Bjarke Ingels

    It may be surprising for an architect of his standing, but Bjarke Ingels has a chip on his shoulder when it comes to people implying his work isn’t terribly good.

    “I think the biggest backhanded criticism-compliment I get is that I’m ‘good at communicating.’ Which implies that you’re bad at doing,” he told Rolling Stone.

    “The fact that something is actually understandable and relatable doesn’t mean that it’s unsophisticated or banal. It just means that it’s crystal-clear. And if you can’t explain it, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s so brilliant that ordinary mortals can’t fathom it. It might just mean that it makes no sense.” [more]

  • Thanks to his larger-than-life designs for Two World Trade Center and Via 57 West (among others), Bjarke Ingels is swiftly becoming one of New York City’s hottest architects. Somewhat surprisingly then is his latest project, a 43,500-square-foot police station in the Bronx.

    Watch the video above to see the new headquarters for the NYPD’s 40th Precinct.
