Not as popular or high profile as Jean Nouvel, Norman Foster or Richard Rogers, David Chipperfield (London, 1953) is one of the architecture greats of the second half of the 20th century and the current one. For now, he is still to be awarded the Pritzker Prize but he does have the honour and prestige of being the only British architect to have been designated for the design of the brand-new Tate Modern in London. His style falls into Minimalism and he has works around the world, Spain included, such as the City of Justice in Barcelona or his unique homes in Villaverde.
The exhibition is called Essentials. David Chipperfield Architects, and it is a journey through Chipperfield’s works, from 1985 until today. Through more than 30 projects carried out in different cities, the visitor can discover his unique conception of architecture, space and design.
