At 40-years-old, Bjarke Ingels is one of the youngest architects to achieve ‘starchitect’ status in the industry.

Born in Copenhagen, Ingels was originally interested in becoming a cartoonist and studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in hopes of improving his drawing skills. During his studies, he developed a passion for architecture and went on to further his education at the Technica Superior de Arquitectura in Barcelona.

From 1998 to 2001, Ingels worked at Rem Koolhaas’ Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in Rotterdam before partnering with fellow OMA alum Julien De Smedt to form PLOT Architects. In 2006, the two disbanded PLOT to create their own practices with Ingels launching the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). The office is currently involved with several high profile residential and commercial projects including Vancouver House in British Columbia, the new Google headquarters in California and Two World Trade Center, the final skyscraper in the Ground Zero Master Plan.

Here’s a look at some of Bjarke Ingel’s amazing designs we found on Instagram.
