Designer Todd Oldham and architect Bjarke Ingels talk the trouble with fashion, from the Kardashians to John Galliano, and how clothes amplify personality.
Bjarke Ingels started BIG Bjarke Ingels Group in 2005 after co-founding PLOT Architects in 2001 and working at the Office of Metropolitan Architecture in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Through a series of award-winning design projects and buildings, Bjarke has developed a reputation for designing buildings that are as programmatically and technically innovative as they are cost and resource conscious. In 2011, the Wall Street Journal awarded Bjarke the Architectural Innovator of the Year Award. In 2012, the American Institute of Architects granted the 8 House its esteemed Honor Award.
Todd is a well-known designer whose career spans more than 20 years. Distinguished as an innovator of accessible design, Todd Oldham is the founder of Todd Oldham Studio, a multifaceted, full-service design studio based in NYC.
Originally a New York fashion designer, the host of “Todd Time” on MTV’s House of Style, Todd’s career has evolved to include all areas of design, from interior design, film and photography, to furniture and graphic design.
Todd is currently working on his 19th book Charley Harper’s Animal Kingdom. His previous books include a 672-
page monograph on the life’s work of artist Alexander Girard; a unique ongoing series called Place Space that explores singular places and the uncommonly devoted people that create them; an artist’s monograph on the brilliant, warped work of Wayne White (all published by AMMO BOOKS).
