Product Description

Review

"Yes is more is a popular and easily accessible manifesto for architecture as one of the most relevant aggregates of the 21st century in which we may epitomise and answer many of the global agenda-setting questions. In the exhibition and in the book, B.I.G. shows how they conceptualise the polymorphous demands, complex rules and highly specialised knowledge of society, creating tangible solutions through artistic processes; solutions which time and again attract the interest of the population at large as well as the respect of global aficionados. Yes is more is a communication created in this very spirit - combing elite and popular elements - allowing the sublime to shone through in the commonplace. Thus audiences are invited into B.I.G.'s processes, methods and results using the most approachable and populist means of communication available - the cartoon. -Kent Martinussen, Architect, CEO, Danish Architecture Centre" --Kent Martinussen, Architect, CEO, Danish Architecture

About the Author

Bjarke Ingels is a "yes man." He rises to the challenge of just about any demand, be it reasonable or otherwise, with an unqualified "Yes." This fuels his ambition to absorb all the political interests surrounding a project and to turn them into backbending forms that disarm the opposition.

An amazing book about architecture, certainly not a bore like most others. Everything in the book is presented like a comic. Its simple to understand, a joy to read, a visual feast. It also has tons of information. Recommended.

At a glance the book seemed a light read with small sections of text and eye catching images, after starting the book it became apparent this was more then an architecture book with a comic layout but instead an interesting read with facts and topics on previous designs along with graphics, images and 3D visuals to make the experience more enjoyable.

Bjarke Ingels is a real archipreneur. He knows how to spoil readers by using fantastic lay-out, content and context. This book is translated as an architecture comic. Very easy to understand. Enjoy it.
