Danish Architecture Is Going BIG

COPENHAGEN — I knew little about the Bjarke Ingels Group (aka BIG) or their architectural practice based in Denmark beyond some photos I had on the internet or publication. Well, yesterday, thanks to a request by Forrest Nash of Contemporary Art Daily, we were treated to a tour of a number of buildings by this accomplished firm that combines great design, smart spatial organization, youthful energy and a sense of community integrated into their structures. Each building, we discovered, was as wondrous and sophisticated as the other.
