‘yes is more’ is bjarke ingels group‘s first solo exhibition in france held at the arc en rêve centre d’architecture in bordeaux. it is the centre’s main summer show, aiming to call attention to the danish architecture firm with a roster of projects such as the ‘copenhagen harbour baths’ (2003), the ‘orestad residences’ (2008) and the recently debuted danish pavilion at the shanghai expo this summer. the 450 m2 space is occupied with a 310 metre long comic strip from BIG’s first monograph by the same title, 19 animated films, and 30 models including his trademark lego towers.
