Since its foundation in 1985, David Chipperfield Architects has developed a diverse international body of work including cultural, residential, commercial, leisure and civic projects as well as masterplanning exercises. Within the portfolio of museums and galleries, projects range from private collections such as the Museo Jumex in Mexico City to public institutions such as the revitalised Neues Museum in Berlin. Practices in London, Berlin, Milan and Shanghai, contribute to a wide range of projects and typologies. The practices’ work is unified and characterised by meticulous attention to the concept and details of every project, and a relentless focus on refining the design ideas to arrive at a solution which is architecturally, socially, and intellectually coherent. The collaborative aspect of committing architecture is at the heart of every single project from inception to completion. David Chipperfield Architects has won more than 100 international awards and citations for design excellence, including the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2007 (for the Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach, Germany), and the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award, and the Deutscher Architekturpreis in 2011 (both for the Neues Museum).
