    CONGRATULATIONS.
    So 2 weeks ago it was Zaha. Last week the stage took Chipperfield. (There is no need to use a full name to recognize these architects, right?)
    Chipperfield’s world is philosophical. The main characteristic of his projects (any of his projects) is depth. You have to understand the very nature of the architecture to enjoy his projects. Seeing exterior forms is not enough. You must see the spirit inside.
