    meet me in...Louisville

    Just back from Louisville, attending the Idea Festival where Bjarke Ingels of BIG spoke about his firm and the Designs on the Future City

    info on the speaker

    Bjarke is an eloquent speaker, and the work of BIG impressively melds concept, formal analysis into built form. It was a treat to attend the festival.

    Whilst at the festival in Louisville, I got to meet with a few archinecteurs (one native to the beautiful city). Later we had drinks with Bjarke to further pinch his brain about his work and the state of architecture.



    The journey was capped off with a visit to Cincinnati and another archinect meet-up, this time with Tunamelt. More photos on my flickr page.

      Yes, jr and I look like twins.

      Bjarke is totally adorable and does fantastic work.

      Buncha smart, sexy people sitting around under those boobs. I was way out of my league - should have just taken off my shirt and blended in with the artwork!

      Liberty you added a healthy dose of class to the afternoon. And more importantly I think we should make this an annual archinect outing... Steven can you make that happen?

      Well Idea Festival does happen every year in Louisville - last year it was where Steven and I met Cameron Sinclair, who knows who will speak next year! Plan for it, techno - and maybe I'll be able to make it more than just a day trip next time.
