“Extraordinary architect, who has brought great refinement and quality to a contemporary interpretation of classical architecture, as a profound principle, rather than simply as an image”

 

David Chipperfield [born 1953, UK], extraordinarily architect has brought great refinement and contemporary interpretation of classical architecture, as a profound principle, rather than merely as an image.
Seeking architectural longevity, as opposed to the fashionable and ephemeral, Chipperfield’s rigorous attention to the tectonic language of architecture contributes depth and refinement to its expression. Chipperfield’s buildings embody a masterful ability to combine a sensitive and responsible approach to large- and small-scale projects, with a precise and poetic handling and control of detailing and materiality. His projects provide unmistakable evidence of a meaningful relationship between urbanism and architecture. Chipperfield´s solution to the reconstruction and addition to the ´Neues Museum´ in Berlin stands out as an exemplary work of subtlety and clarity, resurrecting a profoundly important cultural edifice neglected by history, and allowing it to rise anew from the ashes of a most tragic past.
