David Chipperfield's Berlin studio extends Zurich's existing Kunsthaus museum. The institution is now The largest art museum in Switzerland and consists of buildings from four different eras: The Moser Building(1910), The Pfister Building(1958), The Muller Building(1976), and now The David Chipperfield Extension (2020). Since 1960, the new free-standing building has housed the classical modernist collection, Buhrle's collection, temporary exhibitions and art. David Chipperfield explained: "The extension of Zurich Art Museum combines the fundamental concerns of museum design with the urban context and the relationship with the existing museum." "From the very beginning, we tried to invest in the physical qualities of the museum and enhance the experience of the museum's visitors, while taking into account the civic nature of the building and the institution."
