TitleDavid Adjaye : constructed narratives / David Adjaye ; edited by Peter Allison
ImprintZurich : Lars Muller Publishers, [2017]
Descript 319 pages : chiefly color illustrations, plans ; 25 cm


This book brings together essays and several recently completed buildings by David Adjaye, in the United States and elsewhere. In the essays, Adjaye shows how his approach to the design of temporary pavilions and furniture, private houses, and installations at the 2015 Venice Biennale feeds into his designs for public buildings. Other essays discuss his engagement with geography, the urban environment, his approach to materiality, and architectural types. The presented projects include two public libraries and the National Museum of African American History and Culture, all in Washington D.C., a residential mixed-use building in New York, and a hybrid art-retail building in Beirut. Two of Adjaye's current projects are also included
