“The difference between good and bad architecture is the time you spend on it.”
David Chipperfield founded David Chipperfield Architects in London in 1985. The practice has since won numerous international competitions and built over 100 projects. Its diverse international body of work includes cultural, residential, commercial and educational buildings and spaces for both the private and public sectors, as well as civic projects and urban masterplans.
Offices in London, Berlin, Milan and Shanghai, contribute to the wide range of projects and typologies. Together, the four offices drive common architectural ambitions and share a commitment to the collaborative aspect of creating architecture.
The practice’s work is characterised by meticulous attention to the concept and details of every project, and a relentless focus on refining design ideas to arrive at a solution which is architecturally, socially, and intellectually coherent.
David Chipperfield Architects has won more than 100 international awards and citations for design excellence, including the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2007 for The Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach, Germany, and both the Mies van der Rohe Award (European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture) and the Deutscher Architekturpreis in 2011 for the Neues Museum, Berlin.

This series of major retrospective exhibitions, held in the Palladian Basilica in Vicenza and devoted to the masters of contemporary architecture, had an original approach in that it was the architects themselves who designed their own exhibition. The series was organized by the cultural association Abacoarchitettura, under the patronage of local authorities and universities and with the support of sponsors, including UniFor.
