Bjarke Ingels

“In order to really have an impact on the life of others you must offer something either doable, replicable or inspiring”


Bjarke Ingels is a Danish architect. He started BIG Bjarke Ingels Group in 2005 after co-founding PLOT Architects in 2001 and working at the Office of Metropolitan Architecture in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Through a series of award-winning design projects and buildings, Bjarke has developed a reputation for designing buildings that have state of the art technology and programming, while remaining cost and resource friendly.

Besides his architectural practice, Bjarke has taught at Harvard University, Yale University, Columbia University, and Rice University. He is an Honorary Professor at the Royal Academy of Arts in the School of Architecture in Copenhagen. Some of BIG’s best known projects include the 8 House housing complex; a zeroemission resort on Zira Island in Azerbaijan described as, "one of the world's largest eco-developments"; the VIA (West 57) apartments in Manhattan; and the Google North Bayshore headquarters (co-designed with Thomas Heatherwick). In 2012 Ingels moved to New York City, where in addition to the VIA apartments, BIG won a design contest for improving Manhattan's flood resistance after Hurricane Sandy and is designing the new Two World Trade Center building.

He is a frequent public speaker and has spoken in venues such as TED, WIRED, AMCHAM, 10 Downing Street, and the World Economic Forum.
