Publisher's description: Architecture is the art and science of accommodating the lives we want to live. Our cities and buildings aren't givens; they are the way they are because that is as far as we have come to date. They are the best efforts of our ancestors and fellow planetizens, and if they have shortcomings, it is up to us to continue that effort, pick up where they left off. Bjarke Ingels Group's (BIG) grand mission is to find a pragmatic utopia, shaping not only a particular structural entity, but the kind of world we wish to inhabit. This book examines BIG's odyssey of architectural adaptation.
