David Chipperfield Architects Works 2018 in the Basilica Palladiana

Commissioned by the City of Vicenza, in collaboration with the cultural association Abacoarchitettura, the event marks the return of contemporary architecture exhibitions to the salone superiore of the Basilica Palladiana.

The presentation will examine ‘the important role that architectural culture plays in the history and identity of the city’ and display 16 current and recent projects by the practice at varying stages in their development.
"This exhibition represents our attempt to show how we work, how we develop ideas, how we work in parallel in different projects, cultures, and with different resources, priorities and collaborators, balancing local and global perspectives" says David Chipperfield.

 “This is a long-awaited and particularly significant return: Vicenza is without doubt a world capital of architecture” comments Vicenza’s deputy mayor and councillor for development Jacopo Bulgarini d’Elci. On a practical level, the deputy mayor added that the exhibition will go back to the model tried and tested in previous such events: the architect who is the subject of the exhibition will himself “design his own presence in a place that is “sacred” to architects from all over the world, the Basilica Palladiana”.
