David Chipperfield Architects

David Chipperfield Architects is the only UK-based practice to make the shortlist to design a new national library for Mexico, the Biblioteca de Mexico 'Jose Vasconcelos' in Mexico City. Selected from nearly 600 entries, on a shortlist including Vigliecca Associados from Brazil, Spanish-based MAP Architectos and Eric Owen Moss Architects from the US, Chipperfield's proposals include facilities for recreational reading, a national reference section, offices and information technology provision. The project forms the central part of the regeneration of the city's Buenavista area.
