BIG's latest residential building Frederiksborgvej 73 is awarded the prestigious Lille Arne Award from the Danish Association of Architects at their 11th New Year's reception which honors initiatives, completed projects, and innovative ideas that have inspired debate or made a difference to architecture. The award is given to developer Lejerbo and BIG for prioritizing the spatial qualities of the residences and the building strategy, which enabled the development to complete under a very strict budget for social housing. The building today is home to 66 low-income families in Copenhagen.

Last year, BIG and SLETH were selected by Aarhus City Council to design Aarhus Ø’s new urban development at the site of Bassin 7. Today, we announce BIG’s in-house engineering department - BIG ENGINEERING - has been appointed by MT Højgaard to design the 19-storey clocktower landmark. Together with BIG's architects, the engineering unit will be responsible for the structural and MEP design, as well as the development of energy and indoor climate strategies—making Ø4 Tower a milestone towards our multidisciplinary and holistic design approach.

Both LEGO House and TIRPITZ have been nominated for ArchDaily's 2018 Building of the Year Award under the Cultural Architecture category. The peer-based award recognizes the best building featured on ArchDaily's website in the last year - we hope for your support to advancing the 'Capital for Children' and the 'invisible museum' to the finals. Cast your votes for LEGO House here  and for TIRPITZ here by January 31st!

Following a series of public hearings and over seven years in close collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, Bjarke will be presenting the revised proposal for the Smithsonian South Mall Campus Master Plan at the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) Meeting this Thursday, January 18. The new Master Plan envisions the preservation of the intimate character and diverse plantings of the city’s beloved Haupt Garden, in addition to serving the wider needs of the greater DC area and the residents of Southwest Ecodistrict with well-connected and accessible vibrant, green oases. We hope for your support in joining the hearing on Thursday or via CFA’s website here .

CNN Style takes a look at Sluishuis and Urban Rigger as examples of floating architecture responding to cities' concerns on the impacts of climate change, including rising sea levels. The 46,000 m2 housing complex Sluishuis will float on IJ Lake and serve as a gateway to the artifical islands of IJburg in Amsterdam, while the 680 m2 student housing Urban Rigger tackles issues of climate change and housing shortages in harbor cities such as Copenhagen.

BIG's TIRPITZ is awarded Honors by the AIA New York’s annual Design Awards program. The 'invisible' museum in Blavand, Denmark is recognized by the design jury for its architecture of absence, strengths in technical advancement and focus on landscape—both looking in and peering out. Check out TIRPITZ in the Design Awards Exhibition  at the Center for Architecture, on view from April 20 to June 27th.
