David Chipperfield has today unveiled his plans to reconfigure and renovate the Royal Academy of Arts in London, which will include building a bridge between two historic buildings.

Described by the London-based architect as "a series of subtle interventions", the development will include connecting Burlington House, the grand Palladian house used by the Royal Academy since the mid-19th century, and 6 Burlington Gardens, a former University of London building purchased by the art institution in 2001.
