David Adjaye: Art and Architecture
Thursday, 30 Oktober, 19h, Aula

Alle Veranstaltungen der Architekturklasse finden in englischer Sprache statt.

David Adjaye´s work reflects the critical relationship between art and architecture in all its facets. The reciprocal configurations of this relationship range from a public museum (Denver Museum of Modern Art) to the intimacy of a collaborative production (such as the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennial with Chris Ofili an his collaboration with Olafur Eliasson for Your Black Horizon), from a temporary structure for an art fair (Frieze Art Fair) to artists studios and homes (among others for Jake Chapman, Chris Ofili, Tim Noble, Sue Webster), from private galleries (such as Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin) to his own objects Monoform.

Dar-Es-Salaam-born and London-based architect David Adjaye is recognized as one of the leading architects of his generation. He has held academic positions at Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Princeton University and the Architectural Association. His work has been shown in numerous exhibitions, including David Adjaye: Making Public Buildings (Whitechapel Gallery in London and Studio Museum in Harlem, New York), Manifesta 7 in Bolzano and African Cities (Harvard’s Graduate School of Design). His publications include Houses - Recycling, Reconfiguring, Rebuilding (2005) and Making Public Buildings (2006).
