David Zahle is a Partner at BIG and has been Project and Design Architect for many of BIG’s award-winning and built projects. David’s most recently completed project is the Danish Maritime Museum, a museum designed around an abandoned dry dock next to a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Helsingør, Denmark. His collaboration with Bjarke Ingels began in 2002 with the VM Residences; in the same year, he won the competition for the Helsingør Psychiatric Hospital which he followed through to its completion in 2006. David oversees the design of many prominent cultural and mixed-use projects including a new art gallery and sculpture park in Norway, Västerås Travel Center in Sweden, and the Amager Resource Centre, a new Waste-to-Energy Plant with an innovative roof doubling as a ski slope. The project is currently in construction. In addition to his architectural practice, David has been juror for numerous architectural and cultural awards commitees and frequently travels across Europe and Scandinavia to speak on BIG’s projects and ideas.
