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.
For Ingels, architecture is about creating communities. Understanding what a building will be used for as departure point, Ingels believes in making informed design decisions with comprehensive information.
Our buildings look different because they perform different, he says.
