YES IS MORE Exhibition: An Archicomic on Architectural Evolution

YES IS MORE Exhibition: An Archicomic on Architectural Evolution

As part of arc en rêve’s long-term ambition, this event aims to call attention to a young European agency that considers architectural projects in an incisive, innovative way that does not exclude a sense of humour. With projects such as the Copenhagen Harbour Baths (2003), the Ørestad residences (2008) built on a gigantic sloping slab resembling an urban mountain, and a bike track spiralling through the Danish pavilion at Expo Shanghai (2010), BIG’s completed projects offer profound architectural experiences at a far remove from minimalism, political correctness and digital formalism.

Set up in arc en rêve’s main gallery, the exhibition takes the form of a huge, 130-metre-long comic strip occupying the entire 450 square metres of the space and complete with 30 models – one of them an astonishing LEGO construction – and 19 animated films. As a manifesto project accompanied by a book, Yes is More is an invitation to update our vision of architecture and the city in a return to modernity and its utopias. This is BIG’s first solo exhibition in France which was inaugurated earlier this year at the Danish Architecture Center. The exhibition will take place tomorrow, June 17, 6pm at Arc en Rêve, Entrepôt 7 Rue Ferrêre, 33000 Bordeaux, France.
