Social Infrastructure

A manifesto by Bjarke Ingels

May 2012
Having noticed that the best to be found in contemporary architecture, urban landscape and even fashion these days is, in fact, either comprised of a re-embodiment of former physicalities or of usurped technologies, Bjarke Ingels has a question. He wants to know why we don't conceive of our new public infrastructures creating these distinct tendencies in the first place and build them into the current programme.
