BIG. Formgiving. An Architectural Future History

Giving Form to the Future

Formgiving. An Architectural Future History, the new book by BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), is a visionary attempt to look at the horizon of time. The Danish word for “design” is “formgivning,” which literally means to give form to that which has not yet taken shape. In other words, to give form to the future. Using our power to give form, rather than allowing the future to take shape, is more important now than ever, as humankind’s impact on the planet continues to increase and pose ever greater challenges to all life forms. Architecture plays a special role by proposing spaces for our lives that are fragments of the future in the making. William Gibson’s words embody architecture’s role perfectly: “The future is already here—it’s just not evenly distributed.”
We have the power to create the world of tomorrow!

Previously unpublished essays by Bjarke Ingels, award-winning photography by Laurian Ghinitoiu, Iwan Baan, and Rasmus Hjortshøj, among others, planetary proposals for habitats on the Moon and research centers on Mars

20 LEGO master-builder models of BIG’s work, a glimpse of Masterplanet—BIG’s ongoing work on a collective, crowdsourced masterplan guide for sustaining our planet
