How Bjarke Ingels Is Making a Power Plant One of Denmark's Most Exciting Public Spaces

During the IV International Congress in Pamplona, organized by the Architecture and Society Foundation, we had the opportunity to speak with Bjarke Ingels about his approach to theme "Architecture: Climate Change." The founder of BIG told us about the importance of clean technology and how these technologies must be integrated into architecture. He asserts that new industrial projects must also break from traditional paradigms and question established concepts in order to be reintegrated into communities as clean, attractive and multi-use spaces. Ingels suggests that clean technologies holds exciting possibilities for public spaces.

One of the most innovative and sustainable experiences that Ingels spoke about is the partially completed Amager Bakke waste-to-energy plant in Copenhagen. The plant not only converts trash into energy, but also includes a roof-top ski slope. This out-of-the-box design was only possible because the plant produces the cleanest by-products in the world.

This interview was originally conducted for ArchDaily en español.
