Join us for the first G-Plus Architecture + Film Series for 2019! In the trailer for a new documentary starring Bjarke Ingels, the Danish architect and founder of BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), has revealed the anxiety and pressure he feels to create ‘extraordinary’ architecture. Titled BIG Time, the feature-length documentary follows the 42-year-old architect from boardroom to building site as he visits some of the firm's in-construction projects. It also takes in his Via 57 West ‘courtscraper’ in New York, and his Mountain Dwellings housing and Danish Maritime Museum in Copenhagen. ‘To see abstract ideas become concrete reality is what it's all about,’ says Ingels. ‘We want to give to the world something it has not yet seen, and therefore does not fit into any of the boxes.’
