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.
