This catalogue presents some of David Chipperfield Architects’ (DCA) current work, that is either recently completed, or work-in-progress. The 17 projects are presented at various stages of their development, illustrating the range of activities that take place in an architecture studio today.
The material varies from sketches and models relating to the beginning of the design process, to detail design and construction drawings, and also includes photographs and films of recently completed projects.
A desire to reaffirm the role of architecture as a discipline that can combine artistic research with social values is at the heart of the DCA exhibition at the Basilica Palladiana in the Italian city of Vicenza.
