Architecture+Design Film Festival: David Adjaye—Collaborations: A Portrait of the Architect through the Eyes of Others

Sat, Apr 16 / 9 pm
Directed by Oliver Hardt
2015, Germany, 50 min

Introduced by Ken Borton, 5468796 Architecture.

The film celebrates the practice of the British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye (b.1966), whose work was recently celebrated as the feature exhibition at the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial. The film features extensive interviews with Adjaye and his many collaborators on a significant number of architectural projects, including public libraries, private homes, a major mixed-use housing project in Harlem, artist studios, galleries and exhibitions, as well as speculative projects one hopes might actually get built. By looking at the work more as a collaborative process than as a product or style, and by reflecting on this process “through the eyes of others”—including Steven Holl and Olafur Eliasson—a fuller understanding is gradually built-up, both of Adjaye’s approach, and of architectural practice in general. Architect of the National Museum of African American History opening soon in Washington DC, his firm was recently shortlisted among possible architects for Barack Obama’s Presidential Library in Chicago.
