In 2003 Wakefield Council launched an international RIBA competition to find an architect to design the new art gallery for Wakefield. The competition led to the selection of David Chipperfield Architects.When designing The Hepworth Wakefield, David Chipperfield Architects responded imaginatively to the gallery’s waterfront setting and industrial heritage of the site. The gallery is able to source the majority of its heating and cooling from the river’s flow. The building’s façades have been constructed of pigmented concrete which was created in-situ. This gives the building a sculptural appearance, which echoes the shapes and forms in many of Barbara Hepworth’s sculptures.
