David Chipperfield Architects


‘“Form Matters” is a cerebral blockbuster that relies not on lurid hypergraphics (instead using designer John Morgan’s characteristic restraint) or exuberantly curved cabinets and forms, but rather the pleasure that comes from wandering through a cityscape, scattered with models of varying sizes and materials. The structure of the exhibition is created by a series of large white panels, bearing painstakingly applied vinyl line drawings of 18 signature projects, stripping out the excesses of modern architectural presentation (renders are refreshingly thin on the ground throughout) and reducing each building to its Platonic ideal.’ (Wallpaper online, October 2009)
