David Chipperfield

Architecture on Stage

Refurbishment of the Royal Academy of Arts in London

One of the most highly regarded architects of his generation, Sir David Chipperfield joins us to discuss his practice.

Having founded his practice in London in 1985, Sir David Chipperfield has realised more than 100 buildings across the world. 

Recently completed projects include the James Simon Galerie on Berlin's Museum Island and the refurbishment of the Royal Academy of Arts in London. In 2010 he was knighted for services to architecture in the UK and Germany and the following year received the RIBA Royal Gold Medal for Architecture.

The practice also designed our current exhibition Lee Krasner: Living Colour.

The Architecture Foundation, in association with the Barbican, presents Architecture on Stage – a programme of talks by the world's leading architects.
