Danish “starchitect” Bjarke Ingels, named “one of architecture’s biggest stars” by The Wall Street Journal, is at the peak of his powers when a concussion threatens to get in the way of his most ambitious project yet—one of the skyscrapers which will replace the fallen Twin Towers in New York City. An insistently cutting-edge thinker, Ingels is at the forefront of a new way of city-building that is centered around fostering community through inclusive structures. Following him over the course of five years, Big Time is an insightful look at a visionary’s creative process as Ingels faces a series of challenges in his personal life while tasked with reinventing Manhattan’s iconic skyline.
The film is screening December 1st – 7th at the Hot Docs Cinema. Check the Hot Docs site for ticket prices and show times.
