Knighthood for museum architect
Published 25/01/10



THE architect who designed the River and Rowing Museum in Henley has been knighted in the Queen’s 2010 New Year’s honours.

David Chipperfield’s design used green oak cladding, concrete and glass and it won him one of his many awards for work around the world.

His firm of architects has offices in London, Berlin and Milan and employs 150 staff in 15 countries.

Sir David, 56, worked for Richard Rogers and Norman Foster before establishing his own practice in 1984.

In 2000 he was one of the architects to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale of Architecture and in 2003 was made honorary member of the Florence Academy of Art and Design.


In 2004 he was appointed a CBE for services to architecture. He has taught architecture in Europe and America.

Sir David was the only British architect to be shortlisted for the commission to design Tate Modern but many of his buildings are abroad, especially in Japan, Germany and America.

He completed the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa, and Central Public Library in Des Moines, Iowa, in 2005.
