David Chipperfield: Medalla de Oro del RIBA 2011

La Royal Gold Medal 2011 será para el londinense David Chipperfield, quien alcanza así otro de los máximos reconocimientos que un arquitecto puede obtener en su país, Inglaterra.

El RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) ha premiado anteriormente trabajos de Chipperfield, como el Museo de Literatura Moderna en Marbach,  ganador del Stirling 2007, o el Neues Museum en Berlín (véase AV 131), nominado al mismo premio este año. La Royal Gold Medal reconoce el valor de toda la trayectoria profesional de un arquitecto, y se entrega cada año a una persona o grupo cuya influencia en la arquitectura ya se ha demostrado internacionalmente. Figuras como Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, Frank Gehry, Toyo Ito o Herzog y de Meuron, entre otros, han recibido este galardón.

"I am overwhelmed by the decision of the RIBA to award me the 2011 Royal Gold Medal and to join a list that includes so many great architects and personal heroes. I hope that my career will justify this great honour and that I can fulfil the expectations that this award bestows on me. I share this award with my colleagues and family without whom such a personal achievement would have been well out of reach.”
David Chipperfield, October 2010
