Bjarke Ingels stars in BIG Time documentary

In the trailer for a new documentary staring Bjarke Ingels, the Danish architect and BIG founder has revealed the anxiety and pressure he feels to create “extraordinary” architecture.

Titled BIG Time, the feature-length documentary follows the 42-year-old architect from boardroom to building site as he visits some of the firm’s in-construction projects.

It takes in his Via 57 West “courtscraper” in New York, as well as his Mountain Dwellings housing and Danish Maritime Museum in Copenhagen.

“To see abstract ideas become concrete reality is what it’s all about,” says Ingels. “We want to give to the world something it has not yet seen, and therefore does not fit into the any of the boxes.”

The trailer is punctuated by ominous flashes of brain scans, later revealed to belong to Ingels, who has suffered a concussion during the course of the documentary’s filming.
