An Exhibition Journey: HOT TO COLD

Last month, the international design firm BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) returned to the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. Its new exhibit—HOT TO COLD: an odyssey of architectural adaptation—showcases the hottest and coldest climates of our planet.

The exhibit is organized as a global journey and features more than 60 three-dimensional models that suspend from the museum’s second floor balconies in the historic Great Hall.

The exhibit also premieres 20 of BIG’s projects from the last six years, which are interpreted through multiple works by Iwan Baan, Ila Bêka, Louise Lemoine, and Stefan Sagmeister.
