AV Monographs 245: David Adjaye
After a childhood spent in several African cities and initiatory journeys in the Middle East exploring architectures removed from the hegemonic European canons, David Adjaye settled in London, where he established his first office in 2000. Featured here is a selection of fourteen works and seven projects arranged chronologically, from the architect’s early domestic commissions in the British capital (Elektra House, Dirty House) and iconic buildings in Washington, D.C., and New York, to recent proposals for cultural institutions in Benin City and Johannesburg. It is a varied architecture at the service of its context and the community, determined to offer a diverse account of history.
