IN BRIEF: David Chipperfield Architects

  • Comment

David Chipperfield Architects has beaten a strong shortlist to win the competition to design a new 'City of Justice' for Barcelona and nearby city Hospitalet de Llobregat. The practice, in association with b720 Arquitectura, beat a shortlist including Richard Rogers Partnership, Ricardo Bofill, Pei, Cobb and Partners, and MBM to win the law courts project, which will be built on a former army barracks site midway between the cities. The 330,000m2 vision is for eight buildings linked by a continuous, four-storey-high landscaped atrium space. Each building has courtrooms in its lower levels with offices and chambers associated with the courtrooms on the floors above and differently coloured fritted glass.
