Our journey started in Copenhagen in 2005, followed by an office in NYC in 2010, London in 2016, Barcelona in 2019 and most recently Shenzhen. We have completed more than 60 buildings in 10+ countries and never limit ourselves to a specific region – we go where our projects are.
Over the last two decades, we have grown organically to a 700+ person family worldwide. Working on new projects, typologies and challenges – we are joined by new BIGsters with the skills, experience and expertise our projects need. Join our team!
There is no monopoly on creativity at BIG. When we come up with ideas, we try to be as uncritical as possible during conception and when we edit, we apply immense rigor. Anyone can come up with the idea and it doesn't matter where or who the idea comes from - what matters is why you choose it.
Our design process is best described through Darwin's evolutionary theory. As life evolves, so should our cities and buildings. Darwin's famous evolutionary tree from the 'Origin of Species' could practically be a diagram of how we work: our architecture evolves through generations of design meetings in process of excess and selection
