Bjarke ingels wants you to fund his project on kickstarter

Bjarke Ingels, the superstar architect behind high-profile projects like 2 World Trade Center and the Big U, just announced his latest project … on Kickstarter.

The $15,000 campaign will finance the prototype of something the firm calls a “smoke ring generator”. It’s a tower that will be affixed to a power plant he designed in Copenhagen, and it will emit a symbolic ring of steam for each ton of CO2 the plant emits. It’s like a big ecological scoreboard.

The smoke ring generator is based on a proposal by the Berlin artist group realities:united. It was conceived a few years ago, in collaboration with Danish Technical University and Peter Madsen’s interactive Space Lab, as an accessory for the power plant, which is one of Bjarke Ingels Group’s most unusual projects.
