GUIDE TO SUSTAINIA [pdf]

 

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”

Antoine de Saint Exupéry

This is how we could live in 2020
Hvis du som arkitekt ikke allerede følger udgivelser og debatter fra tænketanken og ugebrevet Mandag Morgen, så var det måske noget. De er allerede en vigtig medspiller i vækst- og klimadebatten, og gør et godt stykke arbejde for at inddrage arkitekternes allerede eksisterende engagement. I oktoberkunne man finde en gratis særudgivelse – ‘Guide to Sustainia’ [77 s. Pdf] – der tegner et roadmap for en ny bæredygtig livsstil.

Så hvem står bag de gode råd?
Som arkitekt sætter man mere end stor pris på deres evne til at formidle og nå ud til beslutningstagere og andre mediers meningsdannere. Men jeg synes at de gør det svært at gennemskue hvem der egentlig er ophavsmændene til de mange gode råd. Men allerede i første kapitel lærer man at der står stærke kræfter bag, som alle er samlet i den uafhængige dansk/globale alliance GGL – Green Growth Leaders [på initiativ af Mandag Morgen, Københavns Kommune, DONG Energy og Realdania], der med sit kommunikationsprojekt, Project Green Light står bag selve udgivelsen af ‘Guide to Sustainia’.

Ud over de mange internationale firmaer der støtter op om projektet, så har de også samlet en sammensat en gruppe af rådgivere og kommunikationseksperter, hvor Bjarke Ingels fra BIG Architects glædeligt er iblandt.

Firmaer i alliancen:
General Electric / Microsoft / DONG Energy / CISCO / DNV, Det Norske Veritas / Philips Lighting / SAS Scandinavian Airlines / Knoll / Tetra Pak / InterfaceFLOR / IKEA / TetraPak / VELUX / DONG Energy / DNV, Det Norske Veritas

KiBiSi IS BORN

KiBiSi
Founded by Kilo Design / Lars Holme Larsen, BIG / Bjarke Ingels and Skibsted Ideation / Jens Martin Skibsted, KiBiSi is a Copenhagen based idea-driven industrial design firm. Each partner contributes with intelligence and experience from within his specific field providing KibiSi with cutting edge knowledge and knowhow within the fields of architecture, design, furniture, electronics, transportation, contemporary culture and lifestyle. Having collaborated on multiple projects for years Lars, Bjarke and Jens Martin decided to turn their intuitive inclination to work together into a full time collaboration.

Ki
Kilo Design by Lars Holme Larsen is known as an industrial design studio rooted in a straight forward approach to design merging elements of contemporary culture from high and low: the art scene as well as the street, the fashion house as well as the workshop. Lars Holme Larsen’s natural eye for blatant and simple solutions to complex design problems, has earned him instant acclaim as one of Danish designs fastest rising stars.

Bi
BIG architects founded by Bjarke Ingels has become one of the leading firms of a new generation of architects, repeatedly attracting public attention and triggering political debate with thought provoking designs. Often moving beyond the traditional boundaries of building BIG’s ideas absorb all the economical, ecological, social and political interests surrounding a project and turn them into back bending forms that are as surprising as they are obvious.

Si
Skibsted Ideation, founded by Biomega creator Jens Martin Skibsted, is a prolific generator of radically new concepts for brand owners: Applying the thinking of branding, fashion and cuisine to the world of industrial design. Young Global Leader and member of “Davos” design think tank, collected by MoMA and frequent collaborator with the world’s biggest brands and best designers, Jens Martin Skibsted is a hyper active citizen of the global design elite.

Ki + Bi + Si = KiBiSi
KiBiSi merges the faculties of its founders into a symbiotic hybrid of design, architecture and ideation: The production knowhow and design sensibility of Kilo Design – the big ideas and large scale perspective of BIG architects – and the idea driven innovation and brand awareness of Skibsted Ideation. Ideas and products are intrinsically tied. We believe the product should be the carrier of its brand idea rather than some designer’s form and formula. In the fertile overlap between Design, Architecture and Ideation, KiBiSi seeks to spawn a new breed of idea driven design.
