Thinking BIG: Danish architects have a radical vision to build a distinct condo community in Toronto
from Globe and Mail
"If everyone is different, then why do so many buildings look the same?" asks Danish architect Bjarke Ingels. "That's something we've been thinking about for a few years now." It's an excellent question — and as our cities absorb new development in the form of apartment buildings, how can those buildings create a sense of community? Mr. Ingels and his firm, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), have been exploring that question in a string of innovative buildings over the past decade — and now that effort is coming to downtown Toronto, in the form of a particularly radical building.
