David Adjaye Houses

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

David Adjaye is the most exciting and accomplished young architect to emerge on the international scene in many years. The combination of material inventiveness, creative clients and modest budgets has produced a refined and comprehensive body of design work.

He was born in Tanzania the son of a diplomat, and his wide-ranging education, both cultural and formal, has allowed him to respond deftly to wildly differing projects, from gritty urban contexts - such as London's Whitechapel multimedia centre and an extension for New York's New Museum - to elegant pastoral retreats in more natural surroundings. The innovation in Adjaye's career is exemplified in his residential works for a wide variety of clients and budgets. Perhaps his best-known projects are the houses he has created in a range of settings for such people as artist Chris Ofili and actor Ewan McGregor.

This publication, his first monograph, celebrates his creative powers. The book is in fine condition, containing 430 illustrations, 162 in colour, printed on high grade paper. The jacket has some light general handling marks on the cover.
A heavy item requiring courier delivery.
