Chipperfield to take Hepworth gallery to Wakefield's waterfront
David Chipperfield Architects has won a RIBA competition to design a £10 million home for the works of sculptor Barbara Hepworth. The design, for the Gallery and Centre for Creative Arts on Wakefield waterfront, beat submissions from Adjaye Associates, Zaha Hadid Architects, Kengo Kuma and Associates, Snøhetta and Spence Associates, and Walters and Cohen. The building will house a range of sculptures by the Wakefield-born artist.
