Since being awarded the project in 2011 we have listened and responded to the community’s concerns and have worked hard with the city, community, consultants and the Kimball staff to completely reinvent the design for the new Kimball Art Center.

The upper gallery can spill out on to a vast roof deck atop the existing building, accommodating outdoor exhibitions and events within the backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains,” said Bjarke Ingels, founding partner of BIG. “The new Kimball will be well equipped to become a major national contributor and catalyst for art, cinema, and education for generations to come.”

ABOUT

BIG-BJARKE INGELS GROUP

BIG is a Copenhagen and New York based group of architects, designers, builders and thinkers operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research and development. The office is currently involved in a large number of projects throughout Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. Not least due to the influence from multicultural exchange, global economical flows and communication technologies that all together require new ways of architectural and urban organization. We believe that in order to deal with today’s challenges, architecture can profitably move into a field that has been largely unexplored. A pragmatic utopian architecture that steers clear of the petrifying pragmatism of boring boxes and the naïve utopian ideas of digital formalism.


In our projects we test the effects of size and the balance of programmatic mixtures on the triple bottom line of the social, economic and ecological outcome. Like a form of programmatic alchemy we create architecture by mixing conventional ingredients such as living, leisure, working, parking and shopping. By hitting the fertile overlap between pragmatic and utopia, we architects once again find the freedom to change the surface of our planet, to better fit contemporary life forms. In all our actions we try to move the focus from the small details to the BIG picture.

BIG IDEAS

KiBiSi partners open new doors to future projects

After 4 years of successful collaboration creating a number of ground breaking designs the founding partners of KiBiSi now refocus on their individual studios for new design challenges. Follow us here: KiBiSi = www.kibisi.com / Ki = www.kilodesign.dk / Bi = www.big.dk / Si = www.Skibstedid.com

KiBiSi

 

KiBiSi is among Scandinavias most influential design groups today. KiBiSi has worked across a wide range of disciplines, creating everything from furniture and household objects, to bicycles and aircraft, and signature designs for clients across the globe. Urban Mobility, Architectural Illumination and Personal Electronics are among the global niches KiBiSi have consistently explored in recent years.

KiBiSi merges the faculties of its founding partners into a symbiotic hybrid of design, architecture and ideation: Production know-how and design sensibility, big ideas and holistic perspective and the idea driven innovation.

KiBiSi is the reference idea-driven industrial design firm. For KiBiSi ideas and products are intrinsically tied: Product should be the carrier of its brand idea rather than some designer's form and formula. KiBiSi designs often explore the potential of crossbreeding elements or attributes from different disciplines in to new functional and aesthetic hybrids.  KiBiSi was founded in Copenhagen by Lars Larsen, Bjarke Ingels Group and Jens Martin Skibsted. Each partner contributes with intelligence and experience from within his specific field providing KiBiSi with cutting edge knowledge and knowhow within the fields of architecture, design, furniture, electronics, transportation, contemporary culture and lifestyle.

Ki + Bi + Si = KiBiSi

 

Lars Larsen, formerly of Kilo Design, is known as an industrial designer rooted with a straight forward approach to design merging elements of contemporary culture from high and low: the art scene as well as the street, the fashion house as well as the workshop. Lars Larsen’s natural eye for blatant and simple solutions to complex design problems, has earned him awards and instant acclaim as one of Scandinavian designs fastest rising stars. 

 

BIG architects founded by Bjarke Ingels has become one of the leading firms of a new generation of architects, repeatedly attracting public attention and triggering political debate with thought provoking designs. Often moving beyond the traditional boundaries of building BIG’s ideas absorb all the economical, ecological, social and political interests surrounding a project and turn them into back bending forms that are as surprising as they are obvious. Bjarke Ingels has been named one of the Top 100 creative people in business today by Fast Company and recently was awarded Innovator of the Year by Wall Street Journal for among other his reinvention of the New York Skyscraper. 

 

Design Philosopher, Jens Martin Skibsted, founder of Biomega and Skibsted Ideation, is a prolific generator of radically new concepts for green transportation and brand owners in general: Applying the thinking of branding, fashion and cuisine to the world of industrial design. Young Global Leader and member of "Davos'" design innovation think tank and frequent collaborator with the world’s biggest brands and best designers, Jens Martin Skibsted, is a hyper active citizen of the global design elite, and an expert contributor to Fast Company. 

 

KiBiSi’s work is present in many major museum collections, including the MoMA in New York, Paris’ Centre National d’Arts Plastique and SFMoMA.

MBS - MIAMI BEACH SQUARE

BIG together with West 8, Fentress, JPA and developers Portman CMC proposes Miami Beach Square as the centerpiece of their 52 acre Convention Center.

 

Miami Beach is a unique city in so many ways. It is one of the youngest cities in America – and perhaps right now one of the most vibrant and dynamic. Its streetscape is characterized by a lively walkable urban fabric with a friendly human scaled environment under the cool shade of tropical trees and art deco canopies - except at the convention center. It is a dead black hole of asphalt in the heart of one the most beautiful and lively cities in America. Our mission is to bring Miami Beach back to the Convention Center – and to imagine an architecture and an urban space unique to the climate and culture of Miami Beach.

 

We propose to roll out an urban fabric of paths and plazas, parks and gardens that forms an archipelago of urban oases throughout the site. At the heart of it – we introduce a central square to become the pivoting point of the entire neighborhood. Becoming the front door to the convention center, and the convention hotel, a front lawn to the revitalized Jackie Gleason Theatre, a town square for the city hall, an outdoor arena for the Latin American Cultural Museum, and the red carpet for the big botanical ball room.

 

SMOKE RINGS IN 2016

BIG and Berlin-based artist group realities:united envision the city of Copenhagen by 2016 in a new animation which shows a completed Amager Bakke waste-to-energy plant, consolidating Denmark as a world leader in waste-to-energy conversion, allowing Copenhageners to ski near downtown Copenhagen while blowing giant smoke rings for each quarter ton C02 the facility produces to serve as a gentle reminder of the impact of consumption - turning the smokestack traditionally the symbol of the industrial era into a symbol for the future.

 

A WALK THROUGH SUPERKILEN

2/3 of the Superkilen team, including BIG's Bjarke Ingels and Bjornstjerne Christiansen from Superflex take a walk around the park for a talk on the process and final design.

 

A TRAVEL TO PALESTINE

Superflex follows Palestinian Hiba and Alaa to their home country to bring back a piece of Palestine to Superkilen in Denmark.

 

8H - The 8-House

8-House is located in Ørestad on the edge of Copenhagen. 8-House offers homes for people in all of life’s stages: the young and the old, singles, families that grow and families that become smaller. Instead of dividing the different functions of the building - for both habitation and retail - into separate blocks, the various functions have been spread out horizontally. The apartments are placed at the top while the commercial program unfolds at the base of the building. As a result, the different horizontal layers have achieved a quality of their own: the apartments benefit from the view, sunlight and fresh air, while the commercial merges with life on the street.

 

BIG ❤ NYC

A BIG red heart pulses with glowing light in a grove of glass rods. A single person can activate the beating heart but joining hands with others will make the heart beat even faster to create a brighter burning heart.

The 10-foot tall glowing sculpture consists of 400 transparent, LED lit, acrylic tubes that form a cube around a suspended heart. The hovering heart pulsates faster reflecting the vibrant human energy in the heart of Times Square.

 

BIG + AUDI REALIZE “URBAN FUTURE” AT DESIGN MIAMI 2011

BIG + Kollision + Schmidhuber & Partner team up to bring BIG’s vision of future urban mobility to life for AUDI at Design Miami/ 2011, running from November 30th through December 4th adjacent to Art Basel Miami Beach. BIG originally presented the concept as an entry for the 2010 AUDI Urban Future Award introducing a future city paved with a digital surface that liberates the streets from existing boundaries and allows for a new flexibility of public use. The 190 m2 three-dimensional LED installation provides a glimpse of the future city where the public space is shared between pedestrians and driverless cars. The entire surface would be infused with a continuous flow of information allowing for real-time interaction between vehicles and their environment. Mounted above the Design Miami installation, 3D cameras track the movement of passers-by processing the data into a generative artwork that feeds back into the LED panels. The installation sets the stage for Audi’s showcar, Audi A2 concept, which has its U.S debut at the design fair and is dedicated to future urban mobility, capable of communicating with its environment. The exhibition car continuously emits arrows showing its driving path, navigating real-time between visitors at the stand. "Our pavilion for AUDI renders visible the invisible forces that flow through our city – the driverless car is relying on sophisticated sensory and computational technology that constantly observes and calculates the dynamic space that the living city constitutes. The result is an architecture of movement whose forms have not been predetermined by the architect but are constantly being recomposed by the people populating the pavilion.” BIG

 

THE NEW RESEARCH CENTRE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF JUSSIEU IN PARIS

As a form of urban experiment the Paris PARC is the imprint of the pressures of its urban context. Wedged into a super dense context – in terms of space, public flows and architectural history – the PARC is conceived as a chain of reactions to the various external and internal forces acting upon it. Inflated to allow daylight and air to enter into the heart of the facility, compressed to ensure daylight and views for the neighboring classrooms and dormitories, lifted and decompressed to allow the public to enter from both plaza and park and finally tilted to reflect the spectacular view of the Paris skyline and the Notre Dame to the Parisians.

 

W57 - West 57th Residential Building

Durst Fetner Residential selects BIG to design a 600-unit residential building. The project entitled West 57th introduces an entirely new residential typology to New York City that will add an inviting twist to the Manhattan Skyline. The building is a hybrid between the European perimeter block and a traditional Manhattan high-rise. West 57th has a unique shape which combines the advantages of both: the compactness and efficiency of a courtyard building providing density, a sense of inti¬macy and security, with the airiness and the expansive views of a skyscraper.

 

LOOP - BIG's LOOP CITY

The industrial areas in the Copenhagen suburbs are next in line for urban development. A new light rail is planned to interconnect 20 development zones with a total area of 11 Km2, the size of the entire inner city. We are proposing to turn the light rail line into a spine of dense urbanity with a series of peaks at the stations. By combing the rail with strategies for energy exchange, waste management, water treatment and electric car stations, the infrastructure could become the base for a new sustainable ring of development around Copenhagen, and an artery of true urbanity pumping life into the heart of the suburbs. At certain points the rail becomes a building itself almost like a Roman aqueduct passing through the suburbs, at other points it forms small pockets of urbanity around the stations.


We propose to upgrade the planned light rail by extending it to form a regional ring around Oresund connecting similar development areas, and creating a new 50 year development perspective for a cross border region between Sweden and Denmark. Where the Finger Plan from 1947 was about connectivity from suburb to center the Loop City is linking a string of highly differentiated urban nodes, universities and working spaces in a center-less metropolitan region around a blue void. This ring, comparable in size to the San Francisco Bay area, has enough development areas to contain the growth of the region the next 50 years, and could become a model for a both sustainable, dense and super recreational development of the region.

 

AUDI - (DRIVER)LESS IS MORE

We imagine that inner cities that are currently banning cars through taxation or tolls to relieve congestion will simply become driverless rather than car-less. Driverless cars will combine individual mobility outside city limits with collective mobility within, as self driven cars move in coordinated concert with their fellow commuters they occupy a quarter of the space human-driven cars require. As the new generation of cars will additionally be noiseless and pollutionless it will mean the end of the apartheid that currently separates cars from pedestrians and bicyclists for comfort, health or safety reasons. The result is an elastic urban space that can expand and contract to accommodate peak traffic hours or allow a park or plaza to invade the car lanes to fit the demands and desires of its citizens.

 

TAM - MUSEO TAMAYO OVERLOOKING MEXICO CITY

The main concept of MUSEO TAMAYO EX-TENSION ATIZAPAN is an “OPENED BOX” that unfolds, opens and invites the visitors inside. Package, restoration and storage will serve as additional cultural spaces for visitors to understand the stages that an art piece goes through in order to get to its specific destination. This is a very direct, strong and symbolic project. Where the shape derives from the client’s preliminary studies that defined the optimal functionality and was then enhanced by taking advantage of the best views from above, making the best of the steep terrain and shading the more social program below, exterior and interior spaces overlap to provide the best environment possible for each function, and optimal climatic performance.

 

LEGO - LEGO TOWERS

The site is laid out as a grid of 3,6 x 3,6 meter squares, creating one continuous pixelated surface, shaped to form a terraced landscape of towers, accommodating housing, hotel, offices and retail. The project becomes an accumulation of individual niches and outdoor spaces forming a collective organic architecture. A Scandinavian high-rise typology incorporating the rationality and modularity of the Danish building tradition.

 

XPO - DANISH PAVILION AT SHANGHAI 2010 WORLD EXPO

BIG, 2+1 and ARUP relaunch the bike as a modern and sustainable urban alternative to the increasing car traffic in Shanghai.The pavilion’s 1500 city bikes are offered for general use to the visitors during EXPO 2010. After the World Expo, it can be moved and relocated for example in People’s Park - as a transferium for the bikes of Shanghai. The building is a loop, housing the exhibition “wellfairytales” in a linear sequence.

 

ABU - KHALIFA PARK

Bjarke Ingels Group was asked by TDIC in Abu Dhabi to design a 15.000 m2 exhibition hall within a 375.000m2 park. Partnering with realities:United and AKT the design of the exhibition hall turned into reconfiguring the entire park. By building a perimeter building that defines Khalifa Park into a more manageable 250.000m2 BIG anticipates Abu Dhabi's rapid growth and protects an open space for future generations. The perimeter building is capped by a thrill ride that allows its riders to catch glimpses of the park and the Gulf beyond.

 

MTN - MY PLAYGROUND ON THE MOUNTAIN

A teaser for an upcoming documentary, MY PLAYGROUND by Kaspar Astrup Schröder. It is a film about movement, tricking, freerunning and parkour in the urban space as well as featuring The Mountain by BIG Architects in Copenhagen, Denmark . It will also feature interviews with urban planners, local politicians, architects and philosophers. The film will feature parkour, freerunning and tricking by freerunners: TEAM JIYO, teamjiyo.com. Shot, edited and directed by Kaspar Astrup Schröder, kasparworks.com. Keep a look out for more clips released during the winter and a premiere of the film in summer 2009.

 

BAT - The Battery

In a city scared of heights, in a country scared of the foreign, can we imagine a multicultural neighbourhood of extreme urban density?

 

The battery is a project about integration. It seeks to facilitate the cultural integration of Islamic and Danish culture, by incorporating the first mosque ever built in Denmark, in the centre of a complex consisting of housing, shopping, leisure, and sports facilities. It seeks to bring together the three disjoined quarters of Islands Brygge, Amagerbro and Ørestad in one overlapping urban activity centre. And finally it seeks to fuse landscape and architecture, the built and the “unbuilt” environment, into a unified urban topography of man made peaks, valleys, cliffs and caves. Architecture free from the stylistic straightjacket - free to create new associations from the architectonic spectrum. The Tower of Babel collapsed because of confusion between the different languages. The new peaks of the Battery will stand precisely because of the multicultural diversity of religion, activity and architecture.
