The architect of the Figge Art Museum will return to the Quad-Cities for a celebration of the building's 10th anniversary next week.

Sir David Chipperfield, shown here in 2002 with a replica of the museum, will be the guest of a reception at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Figge, 225 W. 2nd St., Davenport, and participation in a discussion about its design at 7 p.m.

Both are free and open to the public.

Since construction of the Figge, Chipperfield has gone on to design the Museum of Modern Literature in Germany, the America's Cup Building in Spain, the City of Justice in Barcelona, the Cafe Royal Hotel in London and the St. Louis Art Museum's new wing.
