Portman Prize Lecture: BIG's Plan for the Planet

Bjarke Ingels

Join us for a lecture by Bjarke Ingels, the Founding Creative Director of BIG as he proposes a Plan for the Planet — pragmatic in its principles, utopian in its ambition. Founded by BIG, Bjarke Ingels Group, in 2022 and led by a group of industry experts, the Plan for the Planet Foundation aims to address the fundamental challenges of energy, transport, industry, biodiversity, resources, pollution, water, food, and prosperous living conditions for a world with up to 10 billion inhabitants. The purpose of the Foundation is to present an actionable overview of what it would actually take to stop the net emission of greenhouse gasses, and to get an idea of the practical implications of the ultimate goal, a 100 percent sustainable human presence on Planet Earth. This initiative is our approach to thinking bigger and connecting the sustainable ambitions of our built environment from the small scale to the planetary scale as evidenced through our work.
