BJARKE INGELS GROUP (BIG): HOT TO COLD. An Odyssey of Architectural Adaptation

November 12, 2016 – February 12, 2017, ground floor
GUIDED TOURS: on Saturdays and Sundays 3 p.m.

Under harsh demands of climatic extremes architecture serves primarily shading from the heat or sheltering from the cold. The milder or more temperate environments often leave more room for other factors, such as culture, program, politics and legislation to shape the buildings. The exhibition takes the visitor on a journey from the hottest to the coldest parts of our planet and explores how the designs by in Kopenhagen based Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) are shaped by their cultural and climatic contexts. Numerous architectural models and prototypes will be on display. All Projects are captured by architectural Photographer Iwan Baan ´s masterful Photography. The exhibition also features films that describe life as it occurs within and around BIG’s buildings.

An exhibition by the National Building Museum, Washington.
