Adjaye Associates

David Adjaye is now recognised as the leading architect of his generation in the UK. He formed a partnership in 1994 and quickly developed a reputation as an architect with an artist's sensibility and vision. His ingenious use of materials bespoke design and ability to sculpt and showcase light have engendered high regard from both the architectural community and the wider public. He reformed his studio in June 2000 as Adjaye Associates. Projects have been diverse in scale, audience and geography; collaborations with artists including Chris Ofili and Olafur Eliasson, exhibition design, temporary pavilions and private homes both in the UK and New York. More recently, major arts centres and important public buildings across London, Oslo and Denver have demonstrated David's considered approach to understanding the needs of the constituency served by each building and a respect for integration with their existing locale. David understands his status as a role model for young people and lectures frequently.

That same year, he was awarded the RIBA First Prize Bronze Medal. Following this, he trained at David Chipperfield Architects and then Eduardo Souto de Moura Architects in Oporto.
