RIBA Stirling Prize winner David Chipperfield Architects has been selected as one of the seven shortlisted practices to design the new Design Museum in London.

Haworth Tompkins, Caruso St John Architects, Stanton Williams, John Pawson, Tony Fretton and Claus En Kaan Architecten were the other six firms selected from 42 entries.

The final design team will be announced in April, which will see the creation of temporary and permanent exhibition galleries as well as education, event, catering and retail spaces.

The design also will add an auditorium, office storage, back-of-house areas and plant-related spaces.

The museum is expected to be relocated to the Grade II-listed Commonwealth Institute building located on Kensington High Street from its Tower Bridge home.
