Foster and Chipperfield go head-to-head in Baltimore

  • Comment
David Chipperfield Architects and Foster + Partners are the sole British practices among a stellar list of architects battling to win a ‘signature’ building in Baltimore, USA.

The two Stirling Prize-winning firms are fighting it out to design a $107 million (£57 million) law school building for the University of Baltimore.

Among their rivals to win the scheme are French firm Dominique Perrault Architecture; Americans FXFOWLE, Pelli Clarke Pelli and RTKL Associates; and international practice RMJM Hillier.

Baltimore University president Robert Bogomolny said of the commission: ‘The facility's purpose, scope and location call for the creation of an iconic, forward-looking building – one that will come to define the university and mid-town Baltimore.

‘Free of any limiting or defining architectural context, and on a location that will be viewed from all sides, the building's impact cannot be maximised by traditional approaches.’
