 David Adjaye, An Architectural Mastermind 

David Adjaye, a Tanzanian-born British architect of Ghanaian descent, is bending mathematical equations to create architectural masterpieces. In the world of high profile architecture and architects, very few African names are considered; but, Adjaye just snagged The World Street Journal’s coveted Architecture Innovator title for 2013. With his plans in the works for the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington D.C., he is a much sought after artisan from Lagos to London, Moscow to Manhattan, to Doha, Qatar. Adjaye and Associates has offices in London, New York, Berlin and Accra with projects on four continents – his is a bona fide global design firm. His portfolio includes “two neighbourhood libraries in Washington DC (2012); the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO in Moscow (2010); The Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo (2005); The Bernie Grant Arts Centre in London (2007); the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver (2007); Rivington Place in London (2007); and the Idea Stores on Chrisp Street (2004) and Whitechapel (2005) – two pioneering new libraries in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.”
