My full sketch drawn while at the Danish Architecture Centre.
Several posts are necessary to archive visiting this exhibition as there is so much to cover.
My sketches are personal memory points that are ways to imbed people, places, information and even just shapes and forms that intrigue me.
The sketch of Bjarke Ingels was made from a life size video screen of him speaking directly to camera about many things.
Example: the Danish word for ‘design’ actually is the word and descriptor simultaneously. ‘Formgivning’.
To give form to that which doesn’t yet exist.
The linguist efficiency of that struck me as an indicator of why good design seems so natural in Danish culture.
His talk which I heard about ten times during the sketching was profound and also familiar.
It was amazing to hear him speak so casually of Ray Kurzweil and the Singularity.
The concept of the ages of man being broken down to human intelligence, artificial intelligence and connected intelligence is something I explored playfully in one of my whiteboard animations.
‘Super cities’ was part of the story and it struck me the projected man I was drawing was probably the architect most likely to drive this happening.
The accompanying shapes to the portrait sketch are the different architectural themes BIG has explored including modelling for Martian colony structures.
They function like an artist’s colour palette and are the visual tools and signature of the group.
