"Organized by the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London, this exhibition
presents Adjaye’s built and planned public buildings in three stages:
from design to production and completion. Photographs from his travels
around the world are displayed alongside writings by artists and
architects who have informed his practice. Models, drawings and films
show the evolution of ten major public buildings, focusing on areas of
learning, community, contemporary art and housing. They include the
2005 Venice Biennale pavilion, the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo and the
new Idea Stores in East London." Hear Adjaye speak on Wednesday, Sept. 10 from 6:30-8 pm at UTSA Downtown Campus in the Buena Vista Building Theater.
