YES IS MORE

image001.jpg

BIG opens there first solo exhibition at the Danish Architecture Center, with a play on Mies’ famous “Less is More” as the title [which is awesome].

The exhibition is conceived as a three dimensional comic book about architecture. Told in a linear way, frame by frame, bubble by bubble, chapter by chapter the exhibition unfolds through a 130 meter cartoon strip titled “Yes is More”. The accompanying catalogue is likewise a manga-inspired archicomic that reveals through candor and humor the evolutionary storyline of 35 projects in BIG City.

Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner of BIG
I am a cartoonist at heart that discovered that you can also create powerful visuals and tell interesting (funny) stories outside the image frame or the speech bubble. I like individual freedom combined with collective effort. And I love to express myself as well as creating the conditions for others to express themselves.

I stole the video below from the Danish Architecture Center’s site – mostly because it’s interesting [and an entertaining presentation], but also in case some of you haven’t seen the firm’s work.

I want to get my hands on a copy of the catalog / publication…sounds pretty ill.

The exhibition runs through 31 May 2009, and is open seven days a week 10am – 5pm, Wednesday until 9pm (admission free 5pm – 9pm).
