On Wednesday 25th November Liam Young from Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today will be hosting the UK launch of BIG’s archicomic ‘Yes Is More’ at the Architectural Association. The book is an architecture monograph rendered as a cartoon strip with director Bjarke Ingels cast as comic superhero as he bounds through the bash, zap, pow bubbles of BIG’s kinky constructions. Duelling with the ‘Arch’ villains of planning regulators, developers and the gloom of global recession the spirited Bjarke always seems to win the day, squeezing humour from bureaucracy and spinning tall tales of wide eyed optimism and poptastic manifestos of yes yes yes. The event kicks off at 7pm with a lecture from Bjarke Ingels followed by discussion and a FREE bar. The book will be on sale for a special launch price and the whole gig is open to the public.
