This event has ended.

The BIG CPH Experiment, an exhibition that inaugurated at Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York in October 2007, presents a series of recent design projects and large-scale models by the Copenhagen-based architecture practice BIG/Bjarke Ingels Group. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a model of the LEGO Towers made out of 250,000 LEGO bricks. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. In their projects, BIG tests the effects of size and the balance of programmatic mixtures on the triple bottom line of the social, economical and ecological outcome. Like a form of programmatic alchemy, they create architecture by mixing conventional ingredients such as living, leisure, working, and shopping. The exhibition showcases some built works and a number of large-scale models illustrating proposals for innovative residential typologies, all of which are situated in Copenhagen.
