Is this how to win a job with Bjarke Ingels?

by Kim Megson | 13 Feb 2016

When architect Étienne Duval decided to apply for his dream job – a position at Bjarke Ingels’ studio BIG – he chose a rather unorthodox alternative to a traditional cover letter.

In a bid to stand out from the crowd, Duval posted a special rap on YouTube in which he sets out his suitability for the practice – who are perhaps in need of extra staff having announced a host of new projects recently, including a green-infused New York skyscraper and the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion.

The witty 1:50 clip swiftly sets out Duval’s educational background, architecture experience, language capability, software skills and desire to work with BIG while gently poking fun at Ingels and a number of other high-profile architects.

You can enjoy Duval’s video – which has nearly 147,000 views at the time of writing – below:
