As the subject of Arquitectura Viva&rsquo;s 162nd monograph, the sheer volume and span of projects from Bjarke Ingels Group since its founding in 2005 is staggering. After breaking away from OMA and then his partnership with&nbsp; Julien De Smedt of PLOT to form BIG, Bjarke Ingels has consistently spewed out (mostly unbuilt) large-scale international projects, while also establishing a momentous array of icons.</p> <p> Within the Danish context, <a href="http://www.big.dk/#projects" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">BIG</a> is a loud firm -- in presence, perspective, and popularity. Conceptually, the projects blend Danish sensibilities of high-minded idealism and humbled, matter-of-fact rationalism with social-democratic values and no small seasoning of pomo gimmickry.

A multi-use Chinese hotel complex, shaped like the character for &ldquo;the people&rdquo;? But in their graphical representation, through promotional mat...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/83278077/gwathmey-siegel-kaufman-associates-releases-gwathmey-siegel-buildings-and-projects-2002-2012 Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman & Associates releases Gwathmey Siegel Buildings and Projects 2002-2012 SEL1251 2013-10-03T09:45:00-04:00 >2013-10-07T21:17:45-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/xd/xd8fg3wiprjm9cdd.jpg" width="311" height="400" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>GWATHMEY SIEGEL KAUFMAN &amp; ASSOCIATES RELEASES GWATHMEY SIEGEL BUILDINGS AND PROJECTS 2002-2012</p></em><br /><br /><p> Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman &amp; Associates Architects is pleased to announce the release of Gwathmey Siegel Buildings and Projects 2002-2012, a new monograph, published by Rizzoli and edited by Group C, Inc.
