LEGO House architects launch exhibition in Copenhagen

Bjarke Ingels Group, the firm that planned the LEGO House, has opened an exhibition at the Danish Architecture Center.

Formgiving – An Architectural Future History from Big Bang to Singularity is the name of the Bjarke Ingels Group’s (BIG) new exhibition at the Danish Architecture Center, Copenhagen, which looks at the design history of the firm that designed the LEGO House that is located in Billund, Denmark.

The exhibit features a main gallery highlighting 71 projects from BIG, as well as taking a chronological look at the history of the planet, culminating in an imagined future. The exhibit curators have delved into BIG’s archives to display drawing boards, models and renderings.

In the Golden Gallery, children will be able to construct their own architectural models using LEGO elements and see 25 of BIG’s real life buildings recreated with LEGO bricks.

”Our projects provide glimpses of specific fragments of our future five, ten, and fifty years into the future. Rather than attempting to predict the future, we have the power to propose our future,” Bjarke Ingels said, with the architect hoping to convey this message through the exhibit.

Visitors can enjoy the exhibition at the Danish Architecture Center from today until January 5th, 2020.
