Sir David Adjaye OBE (Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, 1966)
lives and works in Accra, Ghana, London, UK and New York, USA


The Adjaye Futures Lab features a field of physical models paired with narrative films. The selected projects showcase narratives that emerged outside of the dominant canon, such as the Thabo Mbeki Presidential Library and its precolonial inspiration, and the Edo Museum of West African Art/Creative District, which aims to reconstruct, resurrect, and reposition ancient Benin City as a powerhouse of cultural output. These are narratives that speak to an ongoing quest to define, amplify, and encourage diasporic connection and cultural production, expressed through the Newton Enslaved Burial Grounds and Museum project and the Africa Institute in Sharjah.
Collectively, the selected projects speak to notions of placemaking, identity, memory, and meaning as central to the design process with the ambition to create structures conducive to positive forms of human transformation.
