Rendering of “West 57,” designed by Bjarke Ingels

Architect Bjarke Ingels explains "hedonistic sustainability," the idea that sustainable design can enhance our lives rather than be seen as a burden. After winning awards for his work in Denmark, he has recently moved to New York to oversee progress on his first building on this side of the Atlantic. His previous work includes a huge waste to energy conversion plant in the center of Copenhagen with cascading greenery for walls and year round ski slope for a roof. He is also currently working on two of the world's tallest buildings.
