Join the Center / Architecture + Design for our 31st Louis I. Kahn Memorial Award + Talk honoring Bjarke Ingels, architect of Philadelphia's forthcoming 1200 Intrepid at the Navy Yard, as well as 2 World Trade Center in Manhattan and the Google North Bayshore Complex in Mountain View, California. A portion of proceeds from this annual event support the Charter High School for Architecture + Design, a legacy project of the Philadelphia chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
Bjarke Ingels started BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) in 2005 after co-founding PLOT Architects in 2001 and working at OMA in Rotterdam. Through a series of award-winning design projects and buildings, Bjarke has developed a reputation for designing buildings that are as programmatically and technically innovative as they are cost and resource conscious. Bjarke has received numerous awards and honors, including the Danish Crown Prince’s Culture Prize in 2011, the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2004, and the ULI Award for Excellence in 2009. Alongside his architectural practice, Bjarke taught at Harvard University, Yale University, Columbia University, and Rice University and is an honorary professor at the Royal Academy of Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen.
This annual event raises funds to support the Charter High School for Architecture + Design, a legacy project of the Philadelphia chapter of the American Institute of Architects founded in 1999.
