David Chipperfield Architects

Three Art Museums


Be they coherent additions in dialogue with the preexisting, silent interventions on historic buldings, or constructions raised ex novo, the works conceived by David Chipperfield Architects to harbor museum institutions are luminous supports for art and culture that demonstrate a rigorous respect for context, an exquisite way with materials, and a strong civic commitment. From a formidable repertoire of museums Arquitectura Viva has selected three recent realizations, each of them crafted in a different office of the four-branch firm: the Kunsthaus in Zurich, the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and the West Bund Museum in Shanghai.
