One of Britain’s leading contemporary architects, David Adjaye’s building designs reflect inspirations collected from travels around the world and from collaborations with artists like Olafur Eliasson and Chris Oﬁli. Familiar with the artistic process, Adjaye brings this sensitivity to the design of his first contemporary art museum, the new MCA Denver. He contributes to the contemporary dialogue about social space and urban landscape through work that explores light, scale, measurement, and material.
David Adjaye was born in 1966 in Tanzania. This was his first major museum exhibition. He received a BA from South Bank University, London and an MA from Royal College of Art, London. He lives and works in London.
