Book Description
Of the new generation of architects practicing today in Britain under the rubric “neo-minimalists,” none has a higher critical reputation than David Chipperfield. As his fame and commissions have grown worldwide, Chipperfield now find himself in the circle of elite architects, including Tadao Ando and Peter Zumthor, whose reputations have been built on an architecture of spare sensuousness.
Chipperfield’s London-based practice has recently garnered a large number of prestigious projects, among them the reconstruction of the Neues Museum and master plan of the Museum Island in Berlin. His River and Rowing museum on the Thames has been hailed as “a minor masterpiece, a match of modern manners and time-honored materials” and won the Building of the Year Award from the Royal Fine Art...

Book Description
The peaceful monolithic language of Chipperfield's architecture is evidenced in his design for the third and final building in a complex for the German clothing retailer Ernsting. Chipperfield's building stands on a greenfield site in the small town of Coesfeld-Lette, just west of Münster; its companions are two distribution centers built in the late 1990s by Fabio Reinhardt and Bruno Reichlin with Santiago Calatrava, and by Shilling Architects. Chipperfield's structure completes the Ernsting compound and provides office space for business and retail managers as well as a Research & Development department. Christian Richters' and Edmund Sumner's photographs of Chipperfield's architecture reveal its harmonious relationship with the organic curves of Peter Wirtz's landscape design, while Jay Wolke's photographic...

Book Description
The search for the extraordinary in the everyday lies at the heart of the architecture and thinking process of Claus and Kaan Architects. The objective of this quest is to break down the distinction between low practice and high theory, the rift between architecture that serves its immediate and essential purpose and architecture that overlooks the needs of its users and instead addresses architects and critics. This book includes three essays as well as extensive and fully illustrated documentation and descriptions of 50 projects. Along with being a comprehensive overview of the considerable volume of work realized by Claus and Kaan in the last decade, it will also serve as an instructional text, aimed at fellow architects and students, concerning the integration of architecture's dual roles as art and useful object. ...

Book Description
Old Europe is beginning to show signs of renewed vitality, to judge from the results of this latest edition of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture: Mies van der Rohe Award 2003. Not only were 269 works selected; not only are the number of competing countries steadily increasing, especially in Eastern Europe; but the standard of the entries, particularly of the winning projects and the 40 runners-up, are arguably the most impressive ever. Of special note is the predominance of projects that address new sites and/or new programs. The winning project encompasses all this and more: Zaha Hadid's tram station in Strasbourg is at once a strategy, something open-ended, playful, imperfect, intelligent, and playful. But it is also resolved and unafraid to identify with conventional architectural qualities....

Cool Construction

June 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Cool Construction examines four architects in whose work the tactility of craftsmanship and the luminosity of understatement are combined and refined to an unprecedented degree, creating an architecture that demands patience and scrutiny, but that reveals in return an unparalleled beauty. Although the architects—David Chipperfield (London), Waro Kishi (Kyoto), Eduardo Souto de Moura (Lisbon), and Williams and Tsien (New York)—are based in different cultures, their work exhibits a rare vision of purity and serenity that is independent of time and place. From Chipperfield's sensitive reinterpretations of historical forms to the exquisite restraint in Kishi's work, from Souto de Moura's robust but elemental use of the vernacular to Williams and Tsien's planar experimentation, each finds maximum expression...
