BIG TIME

Kaspar Astrup Schröder · Denmark · 2017 · 93 mins · PG · English & Danish with subtitles
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Throughout this remarkable profile of radically imaginative architect Bjarke Ingels, the globetrotting Dane struggles to explain his addiction to building things that haven’t been seen before. His projects, like the Danish National Maritime Museum, upcoming mega sites in Manhattan—including 2 World Trade Center and a private residence that looks like stacks of Swiss cheese—and the massive Vancouver House complex now under construction, combine playfulness with practicality. We get the lead-up to his 40th birthday, as well as some health issues that make that milestone more profound. Director Schröder doesn’t hold back on his sharp-featured subject’s occasionally temperamental ways with clients and colleagues. But a convincing picture emerges of an artist who succeeded in keeping his dream alive in a world that needs to see itself writ large, but is still full of surprises. --Georgia Straight

This engaging doc captures the young lion jetting back and forth between New York and Copenhagen and imagining fantastic work in both places…The designer desperately wants to make his mark on history, and after this you won't want to bet against him. --The Globe and Mail
