David Chipperfield Architects Works 2018

Basilica Palladiana, Vicenza, 12 May – 2 September.


A major exhibition of recent and ongoing work by David Chipperfield Architects officially opened to the public Saturday 12 May. Until 2 September about 20 projects by the London, Berlin, Milan and Shanghai offices will be on display at the Basilica Palladiana, Vicenza exposing the range of activities that take place in an architecture studio today.

The material exhibited varies from rough sketches and models relating to the beginning of the design process, to detail design and construction drawings at the end, and includes photographs and films of recently completed projects. The presentation for each project has been developed by the respective design teams in the London, Berlin, Milan and Shanghai studios, demonstrating the desire to address cultural, professional and intellectual challenges. Current work is described in a manner appropriate to the project, illustrating the ideas behind it. While the majority of the exhibition focuses on active work, the first space in the centre provides an introductory overview of key buildings completed since the practice was founded in 1985, representing an established body of work.

In an age dominated by images, the identity of David Chipperfield Architects can be difficult to define as it is rooted in a particular attitude to design and teamwork, rather than a fixed style. Revealing the processes of designing and creating architecture is therefore crucial to understanding the values that unify an international body of work.
