The Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, without having turned 40 yet, leads a studio of almost 200 people with offices in Copenhagen, New York and Beijing, and with projects spread throughout Europe, United States, Asia and Middle East. Based on the concept of ‘social infrastructure’, his work is the product of analyzing the constant political, economic and social changes, which he addresses via a proactive and optimistic architecture.

Number 162 of AV Monographs, devoted to the young office BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), starts out with a text by Ingels himself, in which he explains the studio’s approach to architecture. This introductory piece is followed by ten works built since 2001, among which the recently completed Danish Maritime Museum or the Danish Pavilion for Expo Shanghai 2010 (some of the first projects, including the pool in Copenhagen harbor, the VM Houses and The Mountain were designed with his ex-partner in PLOT, Julien De Smedt).
