David Chipperfield Architects Works
12 May - 2 September 2018
Basilica Palladiana Vicenza
After 12 years, distinguished contemporary architecture returns to Vicenza with an exhibition at the Basilica Palladiana devoted to David Chipperfield Architects.
Organized by the City of Vicenza and Abacoarchitettura, the exhibition will be installed to a project by Chipperfield himself within the Basilica, which has been restored to its previous splendor following extensive restoration work.
“David Chipperfield Architects Works 2018” will present a selection of 15 of his recent projects in various stages of development, illustrating a series of activities that take place in a modern architectural firm.
in an era dominated by images, the identity of David Chipperfield Architects can be difficult to define because it is deeply rooted in an approach that privileges the design process and teamwork, rather than a particular style. Revealing the logic behind the design process and the resulting creation of architecture thus becomes essential for understanding the values that link the firm's body of works on an international level.
The presentation of each project is handled by the respective design teams in London, Berlin, Milan and Shanghai. Together they reveal a willingness to take on complex cultural, professional and intellectual challenges.
Alongside the presentation of the 15 projects is an introductory survey of the main buildings completed since the launching of the firm in 1985 through today, thereby offering additional context with which to view the works on display.
UniFor is supporting this cultural project in the role of technical sponsor of the display setup.
