To speak with honestly, we are in Bjarke Ingels' TIME,  Bjarke brings a new approach to the radical combination of 'digital age' and 'architecture' through his new typological discoveries. All BIG projects, BIG ambitions, BIG collaborations, BIG researches are based on Bjarke's innovative, challenging and phenomenological attitude that break the rules, reconstruct our memories and go out of the routine. 

We're in a particular era that Bjarke shapes, dominates and discusses alternatives with technology and participation. Thereupon, TIME Magazine named Bjarke Ingels as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. TIME has made the most influential lists of pioneers, titans, artists, leaders and icons. Bjarke was named among the prominent artists including actress Charlize Theron, designer Yayoi Kusama, fashion designer Riccardo Tisci, actor, director and producer Gael García Bernal and Indian actress, singer, producer and philanthropist Priyanka Chopra.

TIME Magazine highlighted Bjarke Ingels on their annual TIME 100 list among world leaders and local activists, artists and athletes, scientists and moguls who: "One way or another each embody a breakthrough: they broke the rules, broke the record, broke the silence, broke the boundaries to reveal what we’re capable of. They are seekers, with a fearless willingness to be surprised by what they find." Nancy Gibbs, Time Magazine

TIME also featured short citations from the persons who know these names very closely. Rem Koolhaas, mentioned that ''Bjarke is the first major architect who disconnected the profession completely from angst'' .... Koolhaas added ''on the contrary, he is the embodiment of a fully fledged new typology, which responds perfectly to the current zeitgeist''.
