Chipperfield lands new Royal Academy project

Proposals for the transformation of the RA Schools library. David Chipperfield and Julian Harrap have been appointed to the job

Architect to work with Julian Harrap on new RA Schools facilities

David Chipperfield and Julian Harrap have been appointed to a multimillion-pound restoration project for the Royal Academy Schools buildings.

Chipperfield last year completed the £56m redevelopment and expansion of the RA’s Piccadilly estate, expanding its exhibition space north into what is now known as Burlington Gardens.

The latest project, funded by a £10m gift, will create new facilities for the RA Schools’ postgraduate students including a new suite of workshops in Burlington Gardens, and a new RA Schools library.
