A decade ago, Sweden’s tallest building went up with a twist. The “Turning Torso” by Santiago Calatrava rises up elegantly on the coast of Malmö, a low-rise city that is Sweden’s third largest.
That same year, across the equally impressive Øresund Bridge that links Copenhagen with Malmö, a sprightly 31-year-old Bjarke Ingels was founding his studio, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) in the Danish capital (his hometown). Today, Calatrava’s tower still lays claim to its 2005 title, but Ingels’ firm has arguably reached greater heights since then.
This is only a handful of the work I have produced. Nearly all of which is for The Architect's Newspaper (AN) and Metropolis Magazine. Click here for a complete list of my work for AN and here for Metropolis.
