Chippo chipper after yet another international gallery shortlisting

David Chipperfield is the only Brit on the international shortlist to design a new art museum in Denver, Colorado.

The London-based architect is facing Allied Works Architecture, of Portland; Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Ohlhausen DuBois Architects, both of New York City; and SANAA, of Tokyo, in the contest for the Clyfford Still Museum job.

The winner will design a 3,000m 2gallery and museum to house the work of Abstract Expressionist Still.

The $10.5 million (£5.6 million) project will also include educational spaces, collection storage, a conservation lab, an archive space and other public areas.

The next step will see the museum's architect-selection committee interview the five firms on 12 and 13 September, and cut the list down to three practices.

Those firms will then return for interviews and a public presentation, with the selection to be made in mid-November.
