Adjaye, RIBA Gold Medal


Since he set up his studio in 2000, David Adjaye has produced works grounded on memory and social commitment, and though most of his projects of consequence – such as the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. and the Ruby City Contemporary Art Center in San Antonio, Texas – are far from his continent, the Ghana-born British architect is devoted to uplifting Africa’s cultural legacy. The human dimension and civic orientation of his buildings have merited this year’s Royal Institute of British Architects Gold Medal, the highest distinction given to an architect in the United Kingdom.
