Architect David Adjaye: A Star Whose Time Is Now

Posted in Design, LinkedIn by ayanabaltrip on 2009/10/30

I just finished reading Fast Company Magazine’s article on David Adjaye, a London-based architect. He’s quite good designing  Denver, Colorado’s Museum of Contemporary Art,  and this fall, the Moscow  School of Management complex he designed opens. In addition, he has designed the homes of noted actors like Ewan McGregor.

Now he’s slated to design the Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., a $500 million project. Quite an accomplishment for such a young architect (43 yrs.), whose in field where such grand projects often go to people almost twice his senior.

I’m always excited to read about designers who are making such a good name for themselves by their work, especially those who don’t necessarily fit the mold or box we often put people in.
