Visiting the office of David Chipperfield Architects Berlin
Group 18 “Unknown Berlin“, had the opportunity to visit the office of David Chipperfield Architects Berlin. The group was greeted by Christoph Felger, Partner and Design Director, and Konstantin Wenzel from the PR department.
First, Mr. Felger outlined how interesting the work of architectures is – a symbiosis of dedication, passion, commitment, creativity and knowhow. 140 people work in the Berlin office.
We were introduced to the fascinating world of architects as we were guided through the existing building and its four new extensions. Mr. Felger led the English group, where as Mr. Wenzel took charge of the German one.
We learned a lot of the worldwide operating offices including international assignments and competitions, the world of architectural models and last but not least, in which Berlin building projects the office is engaged. The tour of the office of David Chipperfield Architects Berlin clearly underlined what creative, complex and responsible tasks architects have to achieve.
