Chipperfield wins RIBA Gold Medal
Sir David Chipperfield is set to receive the RIBA’s Gold Medal award for lifetime achievement, it has been announced.

The medal will be handed over at a ceremony to be conducted at RIBA’s Portland Place HQ on February 11.

Describing Chipperfield as “…one of the world’s greatest architects…”, RIBA President Ruth Reed said: “His architecture is one of calm rational elegance, he is a craftsman of delightful spaces and beautiful detailed buildings, and has carved out a career which is an inspiration to anyone seeking to work outside the boundaries of their home country. I will be delighted to present him with the Royal Gold Medal.”

Chipperfield initially designed the BBC’s marmite Glaswegian HQ, only to see control handed over to Keppie in the latter stages of the build.
