He worked in the studios of Richard Rogers and Norman Foster, in 1985 he founded his own bureau, David Chipperfield Architects.

The jury of the award noted Chipperfield’s works such as the River and Rowing Museum in England, the BBC Headquarters in Scotland, and the Turner Contemporary art gallery. In Russia, the Chipperfield Bureau participated in projects for the restoration of the telegraph building in Moscow and the building of the opera and ballet theater in Perm.
