World Trade Center
The plans for the new Two World Trade Center, were released this year by BIG, and it didn’t disapoint! The imposing 79-floors comercial building is set to be a landmark in Manhattan. BIG designed a series of stacked boxes that decrease in size towards the top, rising to a height of 408 metres.
Google North Bayshore
Google’s bold new campus in Mountain View is proposed by a partnership between Google, Bjarke Ingels Group and Heathewick Studio. The concept behind this enourmous futuristic project is the vision to build a workplace that softens the line between interior and exterior.
The infraestructures are expected to have retails store, parking, cycling and pedestal tracks and a central plaza. The canopies regulate climatte, pollution and sound, giving the sense that there is no boundarie witth the exterior.
For the Serpentine Pavilion 2016, Bjarke Ingels Group created a structure that goes against all we perceive as opposite. SERP is free-form yet rigorous, modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both box and blob. An icredible visual experience that contradicts the normal paradigm and goes deep into the unknown.
VM houses is a visual game created by Bjarke Ingels in Copenhagen.The VM Houses are two residential blocks formed as the letters V and M. The blocks are designed as such to allow for daylight, privacy and views. A typically extravagant Bjarke Ingels’s architect project.

Bjarke Ingels Group developed the form of the maze by combining styles of mazes throughout history, from ancient Greek labyrinths to European hedge mazes and modern American corn mazes. Showing a playfull side, the architects created a kid’s paradise ful of rich tecnical skills.
VIA 57 WEST
Bjarke Ingels Group’ architects vision for vVIA 57 WEST, is an a hybrid between the European perimeter and a tradicional Manhattan high-rase,blending advantages of both. For one side the structure has the compactness and efficiency of a countryard building with the airiness and the expansive views of a skrycraper. Adding to that, the form of the building shifts depending on the viewer’s vantage point.
APM-La Maison Des Fondateurs
Bjarke Ingels Group was designed to expand the headquarters of Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet by adding a spiralling museum that coils up from the landscape.
I think is safe to say that Architectural Digest made a right choice by renowing this unique avant garde group of arquitects, lead by the one and only Bjarke Ingels. A group that is on the vanguard of the design and arquitecture, that now a days can not be separated from the technology idustry, making its mark (and what a big one) on it!
