Bjarke Ingels Group – BIG…. “Pragmatic utopian architecture or “Conscious Inspiration” Architecture

Bjarke Ingels is a another successful graduate from Rem Koolhaas’s school ,the Office of Metropolitan Architecture ,OMA.

BIG ( Bjarke Ingels Groop) is a appreciated  firm that wins architecture competitions, on a regular base, all over the world.

Bjarke Ingels Design philosophy is very pragmatic:

Architecture has been dominated by two opposing extremes Eccentric curiosities” andboring boxes

Bjarke Ingels believes that there is a “third way” a “pragmatic utopian architecture”or as I understand it “Conscious Inspiration Architecture

In This post I will try to demonstrate why I think  BIG’s architecture is based on the principles of “conscious inspiration

1. Le Corbusier’s “raising Ramp”

5.“The Green Lego Towers”

What did I learned from this post?

1.“conscious inspiration” is a pragmatic method that can lead us architects to be a successful firm.

2. “Eccentric curiosities” andboring boxesis out pragmatic utopian architectureis In.

3.pragmatic utopian architectureis designing according to the principles of The “conscious Inspiration Method”….with the  methodology of “conscious Inspiration we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.  Once we develop our toolsit will lead us to high quality and creative architecture”.

A warm recommendation…. Locate  presentations showing  BIG’s Planning process (tools) in YouTube
