    bjarke ingels is the most exciting designer working today.
    the building’s form is not an imposition of the architect’s ego on the city’s citizens. it emerges from sound principles of design; urban, climate, eco, historic, humanist.
    and what is the result; a new idea of what a building can be

    The New World Order is the same as the Old World Order. The only difference is in the materials. Everything else including the surfs and the slaves are the same.
