Bjarke Ingels Says Architecture Should Take After Minecraft

No one in the architecture world is interviewed more than Bjarke Ingels. To keep up, Curbed is instating a (weekly? daily?) series called Bjarke Ingels Says, where Bjarke Ingels says things about Lego, Titanic, handball, "promiscuous hybrids," Game of Thrones, and now, Minecraft.

Bjarke Ingels says "more than a hundred million people populate Minecraft, where they can build their own worlds and inhabit them through play... These fictional worlds empower people with the tools to transform their own environments. This is what architecture ought to be. Architecture must become Worldcraft, the craft of making our world, where our knowledge and technology doesn't limit us but rather enables us to turn surreal dreams into inhabitable space. To turn fiction into fact."

This has been Bjarke Ingels Says.
