Bjarke Ingels: Users are the experts in architecture

For Bjarke Ingels users are the experts when it comes to understanding how to design a building for a specific function.

Bjarke Ingels is not interested in architecture that has preconceived ideas about its use, with little regard for what it is actually going to be doing in the world.

I don’t believe in architecture as some preconceived idea, says Ingels.
