David Chipperfield announced as 2013 Praemium Imperiale architecture laureate 

UK architect David Chipperfield has been selected as the 2013 Praemium Imperiale Award laureate for architecture in the prize’s 25th anniversary year.

The Praemium Imperiale was created in 1988 by the Japan Art Association in celebration and recognition of the international impact artists make in their field, with those selected receiving 5 million yen (£100,000), a gold medal and testimonial letter from Japan’s Imperial Highness Prince Hitachi, honorary patron of the Japan Art Association.

Four other artists were also selected as laureates: Michelangelo Pistoletto (Painting); Antony Gormley (Sculpture); Placido Domingo (Music); and Francis Ford Coppola (Theatre/Film). The Praemium Imperiale is the world’s highest paid arts prize and the laureates will receive their awards at an official ceremony in Tokyo on 16 October 2013.

Hisashi Hieda, Japan Art Association Chairman explained: “In our twenty-fifth year, we reaffirm our commitment to honouring the arts and to celebrating it’s most imaginative and thought-provoking practitioners. The 2013 Praemium Imperiale laureates enrich our lives and touch a common chord of humanity despite geographic and linguistic barriers.”

David Chipperfield Architects originated in London and now operates out of three additional offices in Milan, Shanghai and Berlin. Focusing on residential, cultural and commercial schemes, the firm has gained a plethora of accolades over the thirty years it has been in practice, including the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2007 and Mies van der Rohe Award in 2011.

Chipperfield curated the Venice Bienale in 2012 under the theme ‘Common Ground’, which consisted of a single exhibition through the Central Pavilion at the Giardini and the Arsenale. The exhibition displayed 58 projects by architects, photographers, artists and scholars curated by Chipperfield including emerging architecture and design firms.

Over recent months, David Chipperfield Architects have celebrated a number of major achievements, including the opening of the East Wing at Saint Louis Museum of Art in Missouri, being shortlisted for the Nobel Prize Center in Blasieholm, Stockholm, and winning the renovation of the Haus der Kunst museum in Munich.
