Dane Bjarke Ingels is a successor of Rem Koolhaas, the most celebrated young architect of our time, and, according to Time magazine, one of the hundred most influential people in the world. Getting his start in his native Copenhagen, Bjarke Ingels gradually made his way to New York to change the architectural landscape of the skyscraper city and develop ‘smart home’ ideas. Koolhaas calls him the one who saved the profession from anguish, and Bjarke himself admits that ‘there is nothing more fascinating than inventing buildings and creating something that never existed in the world’. The film by Kaspar Astrup Schröder finds the forty-two-year-old architect at a turning point in life: he has unexpected health problems, and Bjarke can’t forget that every new building might be the last.
