With Formgiving, BIG presents the third part of its trilogy, which began with Yes is More, and continued with Hot to Cold. The book is presented in a timeline, stretching from the Big Bang into the most distant future. Projects are structured around six strands of evolution- 'Making,' 'Sensing,' 'Sustaining,' 'Thinking,' 'Healing,' and 'Moving'- the multimedia-based, interdisciplinary concepts encompassing the building industry. Culture, climate, and landscape, as well as all the energies derived from the elements- the thermal mass of the ocean, the dynamics of currents, the energy and warmth of the sun, the power of the wind- are incorporated into these projects. Throughout more than 700 pages, Bjarke Ingels presents his personal selection of projects, including the 12,000-square-meter LEGO House in Denmark, the human-made ecosystems floating on oceans, the redesign of a World War II bunker into a contemplative museum, and the ski slope-infused power plant celebrating Copenhagen’s commitment to carbon neutrality. Through architecture and design, BIG gives shape to a sustainable and simultaneously colorful world.
