Most widely held works by David Adjaye
Chris Ofili by Chris Ofili( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chris Ofili's intricately constructed works, combining beadlike dots of paint, collaged images from popular media, and elephant dung, create a unique iconography that marries African artistic and ritual practices with Western art historical traditions and contemporary hip-hop culture. This beautifully designed book, made in close collaboration with the artist, is the first to examine Ofili's artistic development and surveys his work in watercolor, graphite drawing, and sculpture. Literary and historical parallels from a formidable list of contributors explore the ways through which the artist has grasped his times with a palpable sense of history."--Jacket

The eye( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2003 Chris Ofili created the spectacular installation within reach for the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Combining a cycle of paintings depicting lovers in a Paradise-like garden with a shimmering glass dome, Ofili plunged visitors into disorienting spaces of dense colour and enveloping light. Shot in London, Germany and Venice, this film relates the creation of within reach. Chris Ofili's reflections on the process are complemented by interviews with his collaborator in Venice, architect David Adjaye, and the structural engineer from Arup Associates, who helped realise the complex dome. Also included is an exploration of The Upper Room, an installation of 13 exquisite canvases by Ofili, which was first shown in 2002. Both this and within reach are about "trying to create an atmosphere for people to feel somehow out of themselves." His aim, the artist explains, is to "do something that is sincerely interesting and can honestly enhance the experience of looking."
David Adjaye : houses : recycling, reconfiguring, rebuilding by David Adjaye( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most exciting and accomplished young architect to emerge on the international scene in many years, David Adjaye uses an artist's clarity of concept to create an engaging architecture that concentrates on materials and issues of place and identity. Born in Tanzania into a diplomatic family, Adjaye enjoyed a wide-ranging formal and cultural education, which has allowed him to respond deftly and instinctively to wildly differing projects, avoiding conventional solutions and seeking to open up new possibilities. The innovation in Adjaye's career is exemplified in his residential works, which show careful experimentation and exquisite nuances. Perhaps his best-known houses are those constructed in a range of settings for people such as artist Chris Ofili and actor Ewan McGregor. Four essential components make up this, Adjaye's first monograph: an introduction by Stuart Hall; a documentation of thirteen of Adjaye's most important projects, over half of which are published here in full for the first time, presented through descriptions, detailed plans and photographs; a series of visual essays that highlight the tactile, luminous and luxurious nature of Adjaye's work; and essays from cultural critics who have been touched by his buildings
David Adjaye : making public buildings : specificity, customization, imbrication by David Adjaye( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Adjaye is one of Britain's leading contemporary architects. Known for his domestic projects, Making Public Buildings focuses for the first time on Adjaye's engagement with civic space and the built environment. Adjaye combines the sensual and emotive with a conceptual approach to the fundamental elements of architecture. His influences range from African art and architecture to contemporary art and music leading to numerous collaborations with artists, including Olafur Eliasson and Chris Ofili. Published on occasion of his exhibition at London's Whitechapel Gallery, this book brings together a distinguished group of authors to reflect on Adjaye's practice, significance and influences. Okwui Enwezor and Saskia Sassen discuss the increasing need for a politicized definition of public space, while Nikolaus Hirsch and Peter Allison consider Adjaye's attention to materials. Two interviews with David Adjaye, one led by Peter Allison and the other by Kodwo Eshun, guide us through his approach to making public buildings within a global context. They are accompanied by drawings, documents and photographs relating to ten of Adjaye̕s most important projects

David Adjaye, authoring : re-placing art and architecture by David Adjaye( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authoring: Re-placing Art and Architecture challenges traditional assumptions about the relationship between art and architecture. From 2008 through 2010, David Adjaye, along with Marc McQuade, taught three studios at the Princeton School of Architecture. Each studio focused on a collaboration with three distinguished artists--Matthew Ritchie, Teresita Fernández, and Jorge Pardo--on interventions in three vastly different sites: the state of New Jersey, the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, and the city of Mérida in Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. Through an exploratory process of questioning, developing, and testing, each architect and artist reexamines the expectations traditionally associated with the conventions of architectural design and representation. Authoring: Re-placing Art and Architecture presents recent projects from David Adjaye, Matthew Ritchie, Teresita Fernández, and Jorge Pardo, along with interviews, essays, and archival material that unpack the shared space of art and architecture

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At just over forty, David Adjaye is one of the worlds most exciting and accomplished architects, and has built many highly acclaimed houses and public buildings in the UK and USA. Over a ten-year period, the Tanzanian born, London-based architect has visited 53 major African cities and photographed thousands of buildings, sites and places that few of us will ever be able to visit. This 7-volume slipcased edition documents Adjaye's tribute to African metropolitan architecture. The individual volumes present cities according to the terrain in which they are situated the Maghreb, Desert, The Sahel, Savannah and Grassland, Mountain and Highveld, and Forest. Each city is shown in a concise urban history, fact file, maps and satellite imagery, along with Adjaye's personal travel notes and dozens of photographs of the city's civic, commercial and residential architecture. All six terrain volumes feature an introductory essay by Adjaye, and a separate volume is dedicated to essays by leading academics and commentators on Africa
