BIG TIME

Bjarke Ingels started out as a young man dreaming of creating cartoons. Now, he has been named "one of architecture's biggest innovators" by The Wall Street Journal and one of The 100 Most Influential People on the planet by TIME Magazine. Big Time follows Bjarke during the course of 7 years (2009-2016), while he struggles to finish his biggest project so far. We are let into Bjarke's creative processes as well as the endless compromises that his work entails, and we are on the side when his personal life starts putting pressure on him, too.

In addition to the recently opened architectural marvel VIA 57 West (625 West 57th Street), Bjarke Ingels' company Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) was given the task of designing and building one of the skyscrapers which will replace Two World Trade Center in Manhattan. While Bjarke is creating these buildings, which will change the New York skyline, he is hit by health-related issues.

TIME 

An event reception with a cash-only bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.
