Bjarke Ingels: 3 Warp-speed Architecture Tales

Most architecture nowadays is very plain. Especially in cities it’s mostly squares with multiple tinted windows.

Bjarke Ingels does not design said buildings. He designs buildings that are highly sophisticated and in shapes no one even knew existed. He believes in architectural evolution and innovation. Bjarke Ingels is using his evolution of architecture to create some of the most fascinating and perplexing buildings ever seen.

Every building Bjarke designs goes through the evolution of architecture. Bjarke and his crew go through many different buildings trying to find the best idea. Though all the models are beautiful only one is picked, though the rest are saved in case they become useful in a later project. By going through this challenge of ideas all the buildings commissioned are as creative as they can be and it shows. Bjarke Ingels buildings are definitely ground-breaking as well as efficient. Some even have their own irrigation using rain water! Having the mountain have artwork using ventilation holes is just one example of his ingenuity. He is definitely the most creative and artistic architect around.

Bjarke Ingels is an inspiration not only to the field of architecture but to all fields of art.

He almost views architecture like an artist sculpting the shape of the building to be visually creative. He only designs the most creative as opposed to the most simple. Every building design is a challenge to be even better than usual. I highly recommend this video even if you don’t like architecture.

The buildings he shows are by far the most creative buildings I have ever seen.

Bjarke’s designs are like those of science fiction. He really is designing the buildings of tomorrow today.  Bjarke is paving new roads for tomorrow.

His unique style of building and his determination for creativity are like no other. He does not design the ordinary, he designs the extraordinary. He definitely gets me interested in architecture. Bjarke Ingels is using his evolution of architecture to create some of the most fascinating and perplexing buildings ever seen.
