AIACV Architecture Festival: Programs & Dialogues ~ Yes is More! by BIG
BIG Bjarke Ingels Group is a Copenhagen and New York based group of architects, designers, builders and thinkers operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research and development. BIG's architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. Their projects test the effects of size and the balance of programmatic mixtures on the triple bottom line of the social, economic and ecological outcome.By hitting the fertile overlap between pragmatic and utopia, BIG finds the freedom to change the surface of our planet, to better fit contemporary life forms. In all their actions they try to move the focus from the small details to the BIG picture.

The central theme around the Central Valley Architecture Festival is an exploration of the identity of our region; the relationship of architecture and design to our culture, landscape, climate and history.
The festival mission is three-fold:
1. Highlight existing relationships between the region and its architecture.
2. Create an ongoing dialogue to inform a distinct, regional, architectural identity.
3. Facilitate greater transparency with the public in how architects create our built environment and how it impacts their daily lives.
