Sir David Alan Chipperfield CBE, RA, RDI, RIBA is one of Britain's most lauded architects. Uncompromisingly modernist in outlook, his practice is driven by a consistent philosophical approach, rather than a `house style'. Chipperfield first made his reputation in Japan in the 1980s. Among his early projects in England that revealed his rigorous and elemental approach to design included a shop for Issey Miyake on London's Sloane Street in 1983, and a house for the fashion photographer Nick Knight. Later, Chipperfield designed the award-winning River and Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames using green oak cladding, concrete and glass. Since then, Chipperfield has moved on to become one of the commanding figures in the design of cultural and civic buildings across Europe and in the United States. Chipperfield was the architect for the reconstruction of the destroyed Neues Museum in Berlin, which reopened in October 2009. In addition to the Neues Museum, Chipperfield was the architect behind Turner Contemporary in Margate.
