Bike Copenhagen with Mike

"Grundlæggende rejser du jo ud for at møde dig selv. For du kan ikke forstå det, du kommer fra, det, du tager for givet, før du møder noget, der er radikalt anderledes." - Bjarke Ingels.

The words above are in Danish language, It's an interview with Danish architecht Bjarke Ingels. who has designed the new waste-to-energyplant with skislopes on the roof here in Copenhagen. He himself is a serious world traveler. Bjarke Ingels says:

Basically one travel to meet oneself. Because you can't understand what you come from, what you take for granted, before you see and meet something radical differently.

I agree. Thats also why I travel. Well said.

Have you ever wondered why you travel?"Grundlæggende rejser du jo ud for at møde dig selv. For du kan ikke forstå det, du kommer fra, det, du tager for givet, før du møder noget, der er radikalt anderledes."

For den danske stjernearkitekt Bjarke Ingels er rejserne ud og hjem en central del af hans voksenliv og dannelse. Som menneske. Og som arkitekt.

Det startede i 1990'erne. Dengang boede Bjarke Ingels på Egmontkollegiet i København, på nabogangen til Børsens udsendte. Vi mødtes første gang, da den tegneserieinteresserede nordsjællænder trådte ind på kollegiekøkkenet, satte sig ved spisebordet af brune spånplader og sitrende af inspiration fortalte om, hvordan et år på arkitektskolen i Barcelona havde ændret hans verdensopfattelse.

"Det var den første transformation. Jeg talte ikke spansk i forvejen, så det måtte jeg lære. For jeg skulle jo studere og reflektere på spansk. Gennem "at bygge sproget" mens jeg lærte det, og gennem det, at jeg boede sammen med en chilener, to franskmænd og en schweizer, opdagede jeg, at verdens værdier og problemer kunne forstås på en helt anden måde, end jeg hidtil havde gjort," husker han.

Næste gang, han kom hjem til Egmontkollegiets køkken, havde han et næsten afklaret blik. Oprindeligt havde han mest var søgt ind på arkitektskolen i København, fordi han ikke vidste, hvad han ellers skulle, og tænkte, at han på skolen kunne blive bedre til at tegne baggrunde til sine tegneserier. Men dér, efter seks måneder på hollandske Rem Kolhaas' tegnestue i Rotterdam, vidste han, hvorfor han skulle være arkitekt. For i arkitekturen lå en nøgle til at formulere idéer, der kunne forandre verden. Og en altopslugende tilgang til arbejdet.

Bjarke Ingels sender et af sine hyppige grin ud over bordet.

"Jeg dukkede op på arbejde hos Rem Koolhaas den første dag og endte med først at komme hjem igen kl. 10 næste morgen. I chok. Selvom jeg var en committed type, var det langt ud over min socialdemokratiske lønmodtagerholdning til, hvordan en almindelig arbejdsdag kunne se ud. Men lige som med sport, træner man sig jo op til at kunne klare det."

Der er skrevet meget om Bjarke Ingels succeser, som der også har været mange af. Men der har også været projekter, der aldrig blev til noget. Og heldigvis for det, for de er med til at holde arkitekten til ilden. Efter syv år i New York, hvor Ingels har været med til at tegne Manhattans skyline, vender han nu hjem med en ambition om at forme København.
