BIG ARCHITECTS, NEW YORK CITY AND COPENHAGEN
26 April 2017
Wednesday, 7:00 pm; Reception and check-in from 6:15 – 6:55 pm
City Performance Hall, Dallas Arts District
Kai-Uwe Bergmann is Managing Partner at BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) who brings his expertise to
projects around the globe, including work in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Kai-Uwe oversees BIG’s projects in over 20 different countries. BIG is a Copenhagen and New
York-based group of architects, designers, builders, and thinkers operating within the fields of
architecture, urbanism, interior design, landscape design, product design, research and
development. The office is currently involved in a large number of projects throughout Europe,
North America, Asia and the Middle East. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis
of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. Not least due to the influence from
multicultural exchange, global economic flows and communication technologies that all together
require new ways of architectural and urban organization. BIG believes that in order
to deal with today’s challenges, architecture can profitably move into a field that has been
largely unexplored. Like a form of programmatic alchemy BIG creates architecture by mixing
conventional ingredients such as living, leisure, working, parking and shopping.
Registered as an architect in the USA (eight states) and Canada, Bergmann most recently
contributed to the resiliency plan The DryLine to protect 10 miles of Manhattan’s coastline.
He complements his professional work through previous teaching assignments at the
University of Florida, the New School of Architecture in San Diego and his alma mater the
University of Virginia. Kai-Uwe Bergmann also sits on the Board of the Van Alen Institute,
participates on numerous international juries and lectures globally on the works of BIG.
Among BIG's many projects are the Danish Maritime Museum; Superkilen, a public
park in Copenhagen; the Zira Island master plan; Lego House Museum; and Europa
City in Paris. Among projects currently under construction are the DryLine, an integrated
flood protection system in NYC; Two World Trade Center; and the Google Corporate
