about

This publication is the result of a year-long dialogue between British architect David Chipperfield (born 1953) and Swiss architect Simon Kretz (born 1982). The two began working together through the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative, in which Chipperfield mentored the younger architect for a year. This publication focuses on a single aspect of their conversations—the problems and possibilities of planning.

On Planning aims to intervene in the future of urban development, offering a manifesto for a relational, collective and diverse future for our cities. Using the Bishopsgate goods yard site in East London as a case study, Chipperfield and Kretz explore the conditions under which an ideal urban development project could flourish. The conclusions reached through this exercise demonstrate how future large-scale developments elsewhere could have more positive urban impact, both at the scale of the neighborhood and the wider metropolis.
