22 March/LECTURE: BJARKE INGELS Hedonistic Sustainability/NAI/Rotterdam

On Thursday, March 22  Ingels will talk about this notion of so-called ‘hedonistic sustainability’ and how this is translated in his design practice. The lecture will take place in De Doelen in Rotterdam. 

“If Hollywood starts ripping off sustainable architecture to portray science fiction it could be a sign we are moving towards hedonistic sustainability.” Bjarke Ingels

A sustainable waste-to-energy-plant in Copenhagen with a roof that functions as a ski slope. The Danish pavilion at the World Expo in Shanghai that shows the sustainability qualities of Danish cities. Both are examples of designs in which the Danish architect Bjarke Ingels shows that sustainability does not have to be a burden, but can increase the quality of life.
