Review: Bjarke Ingels Group’s Hot to Cold at the National Building Museum
Architectural Record, Jan. 28, 2015
How to account for the unstoppable rise of Bjarke Ingels? The Danish architect touched down at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., last week to launch Hot to Cold, a new exhibition of his firm’s work. Tousle-haired but dressed for Washington in a sober suit, Ingels led journalists on a fast-paced tour of the show, stopping briefly to point to a torqued tower or looping ramp as cameras snapped away. Videographers and photographers flitted around him, including one making a documentary about the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). But it would be a mistake to chalk this up to him being a starchitect alone.
