Of all architects and architectural offices that emerged in the 2000s, BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group is probably the most renowned and influencing one.

Although BIG is currently led by twelve partners, its personality is indissolubly connected to that of its founder, Danish architect Bjarke Ingels (b. 1974), who established the office in 2005.
Currently based in Copenhagen and New York, BIG demonstrates a unique capability to combine ingenious and original forms with advanced technology and innovative materials, both in small and large projects.

We admit that, here at Inexhibit, we particularly appreciate BIG’s approach to design and creativity. Indeed, the M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark in Elsinore has been the first major international museum featured in our magazine.
