Theoretical PracticeDavid Chipperfieldellipsis London Ltd.1994

In this book, David Chipperfield sets out a theory of design that rejects centralised ideologies and acknowledges the importance of both intuition and intellect. For Chipperfield, all design is an intellectual craft, involving the reconciliation of ideas as well as responding to the influence of process and materials. Images from built projects reinforce his themes while the central body of the book emphasises the experimentation carried out in projects for buildings in England, Japan and Germany.
