A new cultural campus designed by Sir David Chipperfield will unite the academy’s two buildings, Burlington House on Piccadilly and Burlington Gardens.

He is a former trustee of the Tate and the National Gallery where he was involved in major redevelopments at the Tate in both Liverpool and St Ives and in the east wing of the National Gallery. He has been president of the Royal Academy of Arts since 2011.
