This mid-career survey of Sir David Adjaye’s practice offers insight into the global architect’s unique approach to the built environment, highlighting the ways he weaves local geographies and cultural legacies into his celebrated designs. Showcasing over twenty examples of his built works, including the Moscow School of Management Skolkovo (2010), the exhibition also provides rare access to Adjaye’s research strategies in the early stage of design development. The first project you see as you enter the show is a new research initiative developed with MARCH Architecture School in Moscow. Titled Asiaopolis it presents an analysis of 14 capitals of the former Soviet republics and 12 key Russian industrial cities, to make sense of the ever-changing urban landscape after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Organized in collaboration with Haus der Kunst in Munich and the Art Institute of Chicago, this iteration is designed by Adjaye Associates specifically to bring Adjaye’s characteristic sense of light and pacing to Garage’s historical modernist building.
