"Big Time" is a story of Bjarke Ingels, one of the most respected contemporary young architects, and Time magazine’s one of 100 most influential people today.

Dane Bjarke Ingels is the most celebrated young architect of our time, and, according to Time magazine, one of the hundred most influential people in the world. Getting his start in his native Copenhagen, Bjarke Ingels gradually made his way to New York to change the architectural landscape of the skyscraper city and develop ‘smart home’ ideas. Rem Koolhaas calls him the one who saved the profession from anguish, and Bjarke himself admits that ‘there is nothing more fascinating than inventing buildings and creating something that never existed in the world’. The film finds the forty-two-year-old architect at a turning point in life: he has unexpected health problems, which remind him of the fact that every new building might be his last.
