To live a unique experience with architecture you don’t necessary need high-tech solutions. You can just mix an Italian Renaissance jewel with the works of a star-architect and it’s a done deal: architecture into architecture.

That’s what the visitor of David Chipperfield Architects Works 2018 can experience, the exhibition is held in the beautiful Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza from 12th May to 2nd September. A daydream we visited soon after its opening, searching for inspirations, ideas and a touch of magic. Organized by Abacoarchitettura the exhibition shows 15 projects designed by Chipperfield’s studies in London, Berlin, Milan and Shangai. Among drawings, enlargements and models the exhibition itinerary illustrates all steps happening in an architecture study from beginning to finalization of the project.

Setting up was designed by David Chipperfield and every team co-operated to the preparation. A winning modality highlighting the differences in facing cultural and professional challenges, but also able to catch the attention of the visitor walking from project to project. Centerpiece is the giant projection screen hanged in Salone dei Cinquecento.
