The orb by Bjarke Ingels at the Burning Man

The installation by Big and Jakob Lange is a steel ball that evokes the Earth, in large part crowdfunded on Indiegogo.

The orb, Bjarke Ingels e Jocob Lange, Burning Man 2018

A large earth-shaped ball in 1/500 thousand scale. It is called “The orb” and is the installation of Bjarke Ingels and Jakob Lange proposed on Indiegogo and created for the Burning man of 2018, the “temporary city” that takes shape every year from the end of August to the beginning of September. Fans who have funded the BIG project have received in return some small gifts: a small ball of metal from a desk, a poster, postcards, or all, if the financing was particularly generous (400 $). Amount reached at the moment: 34,301 $. If Bjarke Ingels is not an archi-rock-star, let’s say that it’s very close to it. At the Milan Arch week 2018 the appearance of the Danish architect was welcomed as a hashtag event #woodstock: the Triennale garden was full of people ready to applaud. The installation in the form of a metal sphere in the temporary city of Burning Man makes a good scene: just look at some photos of Instagram. The images of the people are reflected on the ball by day, and at night the inflatable “orbe” of steel gets confused in the dark. During the day, the ball acts as an orientation point in the Nevada desert.
