David Chipperfield Architects is preparing to break ground on a new concert hall in Künzelsau, Germany. Planned for a hillside site south of the city, the quaint "Carmen Würth Forum" will add a new event hall and a chamber music hall to the area by 2017. In the project's second phase, a conference center and museum for the Würth art collection will be added. 

"The building is embedded in the landscape, characterized by expansive meadows and fields, which it integrates as an architectural theme," says Chipperfield.

David Chipperfield Architects has revealed plans to transform Berlin's former Bötzow Brewery into a new "public destination." Located near the city's Alexanderplatz, the 24,000-square-meter industrial site was first home to the Bötzow Brewery in 1885, before being severely damaged during World War II. 

With the new masterplan, Chipperfield plans to restore the surviving 19th-century structures and added three new buildings - all centered around a public plaza - to provide space for a brewery, art gallery, restaurants, medical innovation center, boutique hotel and more. Construction is expected to complete in 2019.
