Chipperfield aims to change public view of the profession

At an interminable press conference on Monday morning biennale director David Chipperfield surprised the assembled journalists by describing architects as “animals”.

In fact, he was referring to is how society views the profession because they are seen as “self-promoting”.

He hopes his show will change that but with an entire sections of the show given over to mini retrospectives of individual architects this seems unlikely.
