Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowship 08
Douglas Durst, Bjarke Ingels
The Bass Fellowship at the Yale School of Architecture was led by Douglas Durst of the Durst Organization, a leading New York firm known for spearheading sustainable high-rise developments, architects Bjarke Ingels and Thomas Christoffersen of BIG, and Yale faculty member Andrew Benner. The studio explored potential synergies between public and private programs in the design of inhabited bridges crossing major waterways in New York City. The featured projects here demonstrate a diverse range of approaches for combining residential, cultural, and commercial activities on complex and dense infrastructural sites in imaginative and productive ways. The book includes interviews with the professors, an essay by Bjarke Ingels and the studio projects.
