The REN Building by Bjarke Ingels Group has a Harmonious Design

 - Feb 16, 2011
The REN Building by Bjarke Ingels Group is a proposed multi-purpose building with a seriously eye-popping design that both culturually and aesthetically attuned to its environment -- two characteristics that are the hallmarks of excellent architecture.

Known for their seemingly larger-than-life architectural visions, BIG designed the building to mimic the Chinese 人 (“ren”) which stands for 'person.' One leg of the REN Building by Bjarke Ingels Group hosts a futuristic water sports cultural center, while the other is reserved for meeting and conference spaces. Where the two legs meet is the home of a towering hotel with over a thousand rooms.
