The British architect David Chipperfield (born 1953) founded his eponymous design firm in 1985, and has been an exemplary exponent of modernism and its ongoing relevance ever since. The confident elegance of his buildings extends a legacy of discreet craftsmanship and clarity learned from early 20th-century architecture: “If you look at a building by Mies van der Rohe,” he observes, “it might look very simple, but up close, the sheer quality of construction, materials and thought are inspirational.”

David Chipperfield Architects: Monograph Vol. II brings the architect’s most comprehensive monograph back into print in an updated edition that features 32 new works by Chipperfield’s firm. More than 60 projects are represented in this volume, from Chipperfield’s early buildings in Japan to the many major museums and galleries, residential and commercial developments, flagship stores and educational buildings built by the practice around the world today.

This publication features multipage sections on the firm’s major building, refurbishment and restoration projects, including the Neues Museum in Berlin, the Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach, the Hepworth Wakefield, the Saint Louis Art Museum, the Museo Jumex in Mexico City, the Inagawa Cemetery in Japan and the Amorepacific headquarters in Seoul. Punctuating the main project entries are proposals and unrealized works, offering a further insight into the practice’s research and design methodology and a thorough survey of the firm’s influential output.


Founded in 1968 by Kaspar and Walther König (as Verlag Gebrüder König Cologne/New York), and since 1981 known as Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Cologne. With an estimated 2,500 titles, they publish mainly on modern and contemporary art, photography, architecture and aesthetic theory.

Walther König have an extensive publishing programme, collaborating long-term with some of Europe’s most significant art museums including Kunsthaus Bregenz (KUB); Serpentine Gallery, London; Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin; and MUMOK, Vienna, among many others.

Now with a London-based imprint (Koenig Books), for the last 10 years they have published mostly in bilingual (German/English) or otherwise predominantly in the English language. Their special interest is in collaborating with artists for the production of artists’ books.
