David Chipperfield makes National Theatre shortlist
The five-strong shortlist also includes Dixon Jones, Levitt Bernstein, Allies and Morrison, and Haworth Tompkins, which has recently completed the revamp of the theatre’s studio block.
The firms will be asked to come up with ideas for creating greater permeability in Denys Lasdun’s 1967 Brutalist masterpiece and improving access to the theatre’s education facilities.
Any development will have to tie in with a new conservation management plan, to be unveiled next month.
A winner is expected to be announced in January next year.
