DAVID ADJAYE: CONSTRUCTED NARRATIVES. David Adjaye. Ed. by Peter Allison. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2017. 320 pp. with 350 ills. (290 col.). 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783037785171 In English.
Publisher's description: Constructed Narratives brings together essays and several recently completed buildings by David Adjaye, in the United States and elsewhere. In the essays, Adjaye shows how his approach to the design of temporary pavilions and furniture, private houses, and installations at the 2015 Venice Biennale feeds into his designs for public buildings. Other essays discuss his engagement with geography, the urban environment, his approach to materiality, and architectural types. The presented projects include two public libraries and the National Museum of African American History and Culture, all in Washington, D.C., a residential mixed-use building in New York, and a hybrid art-retail building in Beirut. Two of Adjaye's current projects are also included.
