Chippo out, as new search begins for Cambridge urban extension architect

The University of Cambridge has confirmed it is looking for another architect to take on work on part of the £1 billion North West Cambridge project.

The university said it was exploring using a different architect for Lot 2 of the first phase of the scheme, to replace David Chipperfield Architects which will no longer be working on it.

A spokesperson for the North West Cambridge development team said the university was taking a “different approach” to that part of the scheme.

The urban extension developments will create a 140ha mixed academic and residential community in North West Cambridge, and includes six main lots plus two landscaping lots.

Lot 2 includes shops, a pub, a University cafe, a housing office and university apartments.

Other practices originally shortlisted for Lot 2 include Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios with 5th Studio and Mole Architects, HKS Architects with Metaphorm, Hopkins Architects and Stanton Williams.

David Chipperfield Architects was unavailable for comment.
