A new not-for-profit art and architecture organization called ASAP (Archive of Spatial Aesthetics and Praxis), founded by former MoMA Curator Tina di Carlo, launches Monday, December 12 at the top of The Standard, New York with Bjarke Ingels, Alex Schweder La and Jerszy Seymour. More information on the event after the break. Bjarke Ingels, the founding partner of BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), is part of a new generation of architects that combine shrewd analysis, playful experimentation, social responsibility and humour. Voted 2011 Innovator of the Year by the Wall Street Journal and the recipient of the Venice’s Golden Lion in 2004, Bjarke and BIG have recently gained international acclaim for their Waste to Energy Plant in Copenhagen, which advocates “hedonistic sustainability,” and their new West 57th Street Residential Building in New York.
