On the heels of its summer blockbuster indoor maze, which attracted more than 50,000 visitors, the international design firm BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group returns to the National Building Museum this January with a behind-the-scenes look at its creative process. The exhibition, HOT TO COLD: an odyssey of architectural adaptation, takes visitors from the hottest to the coldest parts of our planet and explores how BIG´s design solutions are shaped by their cultural and climatic contexts. More than 60 three-dimensional models will be suspended at the second-floor balconies of the Museum’s historic Great Hall in an unprecedented use of this public space.
HOT TO COLD premieres 20 of the studio’s latest projects, interpreted
through Iwan Baan’s masterful photography of BIG’s built work, films by Ila
Bêka and Louise Lemoine*, and the Grammy Award-winning graphic artist Stefan
Sagmeister’s design for the accompanying catalog by Taschen. *HOT TO
COLD* opens on January 24, 2015 and remains on view through August 30, 2015.
