Building upon my last entry on providing richer, more social environments, through cross-programming, check out this video from BIG, Bjarke Ingels Group.

This summer’s European vacation included a stopover in Copenhagen to visit BIG’s VM house, the Mountain dwellings, and 8 house.  I was initially skeptical, chalking up all the buzz to hyperbole, but the projects were well constructed and maintained.  BIG is taking the tenets of modern architecture, but giving it dynamic twist and intensifying use and program.

Cross-programming an incinerator and a ski slope is quite a conceptual feat!
