Video: BIG’s Website as Presentation Tool

recently appeared on CNN’s series Idea, very fitting for his architecture firm Group or BIG. Utilizing the firm’s website, Ingels turns it into a presentation tool, and with ease discusses the design process, sharing diagrams and photographs for four of their projects:  Mountain Dwellings, their submission to the Shanghai Expo complete with video of Ingels himself riding through the Danish Pavilion, the recently unveiled designs for West 57th in New York City, and the winning design for a new Waste-to-Energy plan in Denmark.   The quick, straightforward, and stylish presentation beckons the question, is there still a place for powerpoint?

    Well, that presentation essentially :-) shows the pace and quality of the consumption of architectural ideas nowadays… But it still is amazing how these guys adapted to that and make every design decision appear really simple and obvious.
