I have found Bjarke Ingels to be one of the most fascinating architects who is constantly pushing the envelope in terms of maximizing site potential and what is possible architecturally. Last year, a documentary was released about the design and construction of the world’s cleanest waste-to-energy plant, CopenHill. Bjarke Ingels firm, BIG, won the project as part of an international design competition.
What made BIG’s proposal unique was the site was also a public infrastructure project by means of a ski slope. This documentary follows behind the scenes of Bjarke’s madness from concept presentation, construction, and the final opening.
The documentary is currently available as part of the Transitions Film Festival and available for viewing from the 26th of February till the 15th of March 2021 and ticket information can be found here.
