SIR DAVID ADJAYE OBE
Born in Tanzania to Ghanaian parents, Adjaye is recognised as a leading architect of his generation. His ingenious use of materials and sculptural ability have established him as an architect with an artist’s sensibility and vision. Since establishing Adjaye Associates in 2000, Adjaye has built his name on public projects that enrich the civic life of their users, including the recently opened National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. Adjaye was honoured with the title of OBE in 2007 and is receiving knighthood later this year for his services to British architecture.
