David Chipperfield Architects

  • Comment

David Chipperfield Architects has followed in the footsteps of Mies van der Rohe, Foster and Partners and Peter Eisenman by putting forward a plan for a tower on a politically sensitive site in Berlin to stimulate debate and maybe even get built. Project architect Martin Ebert said the 205m offices proposal is for Spreedreieck, a triangular site with a height limit of 30m imposed in the 1990s development plan. In 1920 Mies proposed a high-rise building for the site. Owner Muller-Spreer still wants to build a skyscraper and asked Fosters to design a scheme, which was followed by an unsolicited Eisenman proposal.

Now the site owner plus newspaper owner Taggespiegel have commissioned schemes by Chipperfield and other practices.

They are on show at MIPIM in Cannes, which started yesterday.
