You and others might like an upcoming documentary at the NYC.DOC film festival about Bjarke:

Quote:
Big Time

Architect Bjarke Ingels made a name for himself and for his design firm BIG in his native Denmark, winning international acclaim for his bold, untraditional designs. Director Kaspar Astrup Schröder follows Ingels over six years as he takes on his largest project yet, relocating to New York City to create the new 2 World Trade Center. How will the maverick genius balance his professional ambition and personal life when given the chance to change the city’s iconic skyline?
I'm not a fan, but..

It's okay to be a bit controversial as an architect.

Of course …yes it was a tragedy that the old Penn Station was torn down and it was a positive thing that Grand Central Station was preserved but don’t you think it’s a bit much that some people are going bananas over too many supertalls being built. Look at the jobs that are being created…Major organizations like Time Warner and other companies are grabbing at the chance to move into projects like Hudson Yards and look at how incredible the area around the World Trade Center looks after reconstruction. Downtown Brooklyn is becoming a major hub in NYC. We are competing with other cities for the right to bring in Amazon which already has announced that they are moving their back offices into Manhattan West which could create the potential to create 2,000 jobs. Preservation has it’s place but it should never impede in the potential for progress and job growth and the Not In My Backyard People (NIMBY’s) have for too long exploited their special interests which in the long run do not benefit the opportunity for growth and expansion. It’s time that a competing voice against their opinion be heard.

Ugh, you need a balance. Or else end up like Hong Kong, or somewhere else that knocked down neRly all old buildings.
