NewNowNext: Sir David Adjaye


Tickets are now available for the last NewNowNext of the year with British/Ghanaian architect Sir David Adjaye.

This year’s series will explore how architecture can remain potent, essential, whilst ‘sustaining’ its agency in an increasingly complicated and diverse world.  Key elements of quality design, new technology, and understanding architects’ responsibility to the environment and active citizenship are vital to its endurance and the 2019 line-up has been selected to reflect this. The line-up of talks taking place throughout the year in Dublin includes some of the most intriguing and inspiring people now from the world of architecture.

Recently his work was on show in the Design Museum London, Sir David Adjaye‘s broadly ranging influences, ingenious use of materials and sculptural ability have established him as an architect with an artist’s sensibility and vision. Born in Tanzania to Ghanaian parents, Sir David Adjaye OBE is recognised as a leading architect of his generation.  His largest project to date, the $540 million Smithsonian Institution National Museum of African American History and Culture, opened on the National Mall in Washington DC in fall of 2016. Ongoing projects include a new home for the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, the recently announced National Cathedral of Ghana in Accra, and the National Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre in London.
