David Adjaye: Making Public Buildings

Peter Allison (Author)
Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


David Adjaye is one of the leading architects to emerge in Britain today, whose practice combines the sensual and emotive with a conceptual approach to the fundamental elements of architecture. Refusing to reduce his formal vocabulary to a signature style, he has instead explored scale, measurement, space, light and materials in projects that have included private homes, retail spaces and public buildings. Titled "Making Public Buildings", the exhibition and this accompanying catalogue will focus on Adjaye's work in the public realm, and will be organised in three sections. The first, titled Inspiration, will bring together images that point to Adjaye's influences. The second will focus on production, and will bring together models relating to 12 projects, organised into five sections: Learning & Community; Education / Edification; Contemporary Art; Housing; and Public Places. Also included in this section will be writings, drawings and images relating both to the process of construction, and to elements of art and architectural history. The final section will consist of films exploring 12 completed buildings.
