Respectful with the history and the genius loci, but radically contemporary; based on a language of clean geometry, but essentially material; signature architecture, but at the service of the community. This is how we could describe the professional career of the British architect David Chipperfield, whose studio founded in 1985 has a polycentric organization today with offices in London, Berlin, Milan, and Shanghai. Under the title David Chipperfield Architects 1984-2021, Arquitectura Viva offers a detailed presentation of 65 selected works and projects in a hardcover volume. in a fully bilingual Spanish-English edition. Chipperfield’s buildings are well known as works of concise and coherent architecture that tackles the discipline’s fundamental principles (space, light, geometry), and that shows its capacity to adapt to the different ecosystems of globalization.
