Chris Ofili by Chris Ofili ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 366 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."--BOOK JACKET

David Adjaye, authoring : re-placing art and architecture by David Adjaye ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 17 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

Adjaye, Africa, architecture : a photographic survey of metropolitan architecture by David Adjaye ( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 12 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
David Adjaye : houses : recycling, reconfiguring, rebuilding by David Adjaye ( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
David Adjaye is the most exciting young architect to emerge on the international scene in many years. The winner of the competition to design the Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo and the architect of the extension to Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art, Adjaye is currently enjoying enormous and ever-increasing worldwide attention. This publication, an object of beauty in its own right, is a timely celebration of an extraordinary young talent. Born in Tanzania the son of a diplomat, David Adjaye enjoyed a wide-ranging formal and cultural education that has allowed him to respond deftly to wildly differing projects, avoiding conventional solutions and seeking to open up new possibilities for contemporary culture, both local and global. The innovation in Adjaye's career is exemplified in his residential works for a wide variety of clients and budgets. Perhaps his best-known residences are those for such creatives as artist Chris Ofili and and actor Ewan McGregor

David Adjaye : a house for an art collector by David Adjaye ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"[Adjaye's] conceptually-driven structures culminated in the house Seven, a recently completed townhouse in New York". Designed and built over five years for the contemporary art collector Adam Lindemann, 77E77 was conceived as a sophisticated response to the specific site and the culturally rich neighborhood. The result is a spatially complex series of interlocking spaces, providing suitable rooms for both the challenging art collection it houses and a young and growing family. With 77E77 Adjaye has made a fresh and successful contribution to the history of the modern home in New York: a house for our new generation"--Publisher's website
