Architectural Works 1990-2002
David Chipperfield by David Chipperfield
Book DescriptionDavid Chipperfield worked for both Richard Rogers and Foster Associates before establishing his own practice in 1984. Often erroneously thought of as a minimalist architect, he has become one of the most conceptionally complex architects working today, thanks to the diversity and depth of his realized projects. Amongst his highly acclaimed projects are the River & Rowing Museum which was his first major commission in England, the Knight House, or the masterplan for the Museum Island in Berlin. More recently his projects include the Villa in Berlin-Schoneberg and the elegant office building in Dusseldorf. Chipperfield is also active in Milan, Venice, Madrid, the USA, and Japan. Beautifully designed by Quentin Newark this book presents with over 60 projects Chipperfield's complete oeuvre. An essay focuses on his creative process and the architect's considerations on the architectonic development over the last decades. Jonathan Keates and Kenneth Frampton analyse key aspects of Chipperfield's architecture.
