Danish architect and enfant terrible Bjarke Ingels inspired many with his 2009 manifesto-in-comic-book-form Yes Is More, in which he questioned predecessors and contemporaries for architectural escapades he felt had become naively utopian or scarily pragmatic. His firm BIG searches for a pragmatic utopian architecture that surprises on social, economic, and environmental levels. Do you wonder whether sustainability can be understood not as a series of sacrifices, but as an exercise in pure pleasure-seeking? Join Ingels for a visual tour of hedonistic sustainability.
