How do you want to live? Everyone has a different answer, and it’s those answers that Bjarke Ingels, the founder of BIG, the Bjarke Ingels Group, spends his days trying to fulfill. “What’s interesting about being an architect is that we have the skills to make sure our physical world fits the way we want to live,” Ingels says.

While others may feel restricted by the inevitable constraints associated with architecture, such as budgets, stakeholder input and sustainability goals, Ingels thrives on them. “In the first few months of a project, you have a hundred different ideas competing. It’s a very messy process, but gradually the design idea evolves.”

To ensure that ideas aren’t lost in the creative process, Ingels encourages his team to move away from the computer. “Ideas tend to disappear into cyberspace,” he explains. “When you get it out in print, you see things you might miss on the screen.”
