The exhibition comprises two main sections. The first explores an evolution of projects; both built and unbuilt, tracing a series of ideas and development of form. The second offers a more in-depth view of a series of representative projects, including The Hepworth Wakefield and Turner Contemporary in Margate, both due to open in 2011, the Stirling Prize winning Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach, Germany, the much celebrated Neues Museum in Berlin, that will open a week prior to the exhibition, and the Rockbund, a large-scale urban redevelopment project on the Bund in Shanghai.

The exhibition ‘Form Matters’ could not have been realised without the sponsors’ generous support, and in particular the significant contribution made by Shanghai Rockbund Master Development Co. Ltd. David Chipperfield Architects is working with the company on the restoration and conservation of ten historic buildings on the Yuan Ming Yuan Road on the Bund in Shanghai, including the Rockbund Art Museum and the Andrews and George Building (Rockbund 6).
