Yes is More is the easily accessible manifest, but tirelessly radical, the architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group, or BIG, based in Copenhagen. Unlike a typical architectural monograph, this book uses the comic book format to express its radical program for contemporary architecture. It also marks the first comprehensive documentation of avant-garde practice of BIG, the method, process, tools and concepts are constantly questioned and redefined. Or as the group itself says:

"Historically, architecture has been dominated by two opposing extremes. A vanguard full of crazy ideas, which originated from philosophy to mysticism, and well organized corporate consultants that build high quality boxes predictable and boring Architecture it seems entrenched: naively utopian or petrificantemente pragmatic we believe there is a third way between these diametric opposites. a pragmatic utopian architecture that creates perfect social, economic and environmentally places as a practical objective at BIG we are dedicated to investing in the overlap between radical and. reality. in all our actions we try to move the focus from the small details to the big (BIG) image."

Bjarke Ingels attracts highly talented employees, but also gifted and ambitious clients worldwide. Then creates intelligent synergies powerful energies and unforeseen dynamics and transforms them into surprising, functional, cost-effective and beautiful to the specific challenges and complex solutions of each task.

BIG projects have won awards from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, as well as many other international awards. Yes is More is a game that represents the spirit of the company and outlines its irreverent attitude towards excessive formalism, and its determination to involve the general population in their creations. As an extension of their methods and results, his first monograph uses the medium more accessible and popular among the available media: comics.
