With news breaking that Bjarke Ingels could be re-designing 2 World Trade Center, we thought now would be a great opportunity to peek into the creative mind behind modern architecture‘s most mind-bending and whimsical new additions. In this short film created for Dezeen, Ingels explains his theory of “Worldcraft” (a play on Minecraft) which posits that we should tear away from status quo architecture and instead turn our most “surreal dreams into inhabitable space.” The feature is quite poetic and also provides plenty of insight into Ingels’s design process and his most recent works—including a trash-mound-slash-waste-treatment-center-slash-power-plant-turned-ski-slope for Copenhagen that releases its steam in playful puff rings.
