Join the Center for Architecture and Design for our 33rd Louis I. Kahn Memorial Award + Talk, honoring architect Sir David Adjaye OBE. At the event, Sir Adjaye will discuss his work, his process, and offer insights into his vision for designing inspirational architectural spaces. Join us before the talk for a VIP reception to meet the speaker and enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres and an open bar (VIP ticket required).
Sir Adjaye is the principal and founder of Adjaye Associates. Born in Tanzania to Ghanaian 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.
This annual event raises funds to support the Charter High School for Architecture + Design, the first school of its kind in the nation, founded in 1999 as a legacy project of the Philadelphia chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
