A very refreshing joint lecture by Shohei Shigematsu of OMA and Bjarke Ingels, founder of BIG. An almost unique opportunity to see two different architects from two different offices present, discuss and critique each other’s work on a common stage – a live antithesis to Rem Koolhaas’s recent critique that there is no coherent architectural community or culture, and that all architects do lately – is compete. Bjarke humorous and lively, and Shohei quiet, critical and thoughtful – as ever. Highly recommended!
