There is a relationship with the work of people like Tony Fretton but Chipperfield's architecture practice is large and international.
David Chipperfield's work is typically in Europe and involving buildings such as art galleries. His Rowing Museum at Henley made a large impact - certainly for UK architects - when it opened.
