Posted by: Kate Torgovnick May

Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, principal of BIG charmed the crowd at TED Global 2009 with his talk on his optimistic and innovative projects. He also showed his “Yes Is More” manifesto, a 130 meter long cartoon strip designed to encourage big thinking. Those on Twitter were super complementary of Ingels’ talk:

Ingels: Denish architect with a GREAT sense of humor – rare phenomenon! — Idit

… Some of his talk is untweetably funny, kinda a “you had to be there” moment. — ruthannharnisch

… Ingels features building designs that will WOW you! Thinking why can’t architects in UPD do something similar? –rom

Ingels is the FIRST architect who creates sustainable green architecture fun and desireable to live in.. the next Gehry !!!Idit

I want to be an architect. Bjarke Ingels is a rock star. No wait better: he’s an architect. — nauiokaspark
