In a conversation with Barry Bergdoll, David Chipperfield speaks about the work of his practice, in particular the extensive experience in restoration and repurposing buildings worldwide. From the renovation of Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin to the approach for transforming the 1014 Fifth Ave. townhouse in Manhattan, the practice prioritises re-use not only for vital reasons of sustainability but also for the socio-cultural values of continuity and identity in increasingly homogenized urban environments.
