THE CITY HOSTS DAVID ADJAYE IN CAPE TOWN
Join Zahira Asmal, director of The City, in conversation with Sir David Adjaye about the making of the National Museum of African American History and Culture – the new museum of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.
The event is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, free of charge but seats are limited.
Sir David Adjaye OBE is the principal and founder of Adjaye Associates. Born in Tanzania to Ghanian parents, his broadly ranging influences, ingenious use of materials and sculptural ability have established him as an architect with an artist’s sensibility and vision. His largest project to date, the $540 million Smithsonian Institute National Museum of African American History and Culture, opened on the National Mall in Washington DC in fall of 2016 and was named Cultural Event of the Year by the New York Times. In 2017, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and was recognized as one of the 100 most influential people of the year by TIME magazine.
The City is a disseminator of the dynamic cultural, social and economic change implicit in the urban consciousness of our times. Through singular publications, curated experiences and strategic connections, The City delivers messages to targeted global communities that span the private, public and civil realm.
