David Adjaye: Making MemoryArchitect David Adjaye examines the idea of the monument at the Design Museum where seven of his buildings come under the spotlight. The London based architect, designer of this year's Brit Awards trophy, presents his thinking on how architecture and form are used as storytelling devices. His projects such as the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. (crowned Design of the Year 2017) and the National Cathedral of Ghana are examined, showing how Adjaye uses architecture to create monuments and memorials.

 

About Design Museum

In 2016 the Design Museum moves from is long standing home at Shad Thames to a venue three times the size, the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington High Street. The Grade II* listed building has been transformed by a design team led by John Pawson to include the Swarovski Foundation Centre for Learning, 202-seat Bakala Auditorium and a dedicated gallery to display its permanent collection, accessible free of charge.
