David Adjaye
British, born 1966

Described as an architect with an artist’s sensibility, David Adjaye is well known for his collaborations with contemporary artists and curators such as Chris Ofili, Olafur Eliasson, and Shekhar Kapur. Minimalist in design, his architecture and sculpture focuses on the interplay between space and light. Through this approach, he has been most successful at creating art spaces both private and public to view projections, collections, and the like. Not adhering to a particular style or type of design, Adjaye’s work is extremely relational to context, directly informed by the surrounding environment. His use of material also varies accordingly, ranging from plastic and driftwood to carbon fiber. To him, “there is not a hierarchical difference.”
