Most widely held works by David Adjaye
Chris Ofili by Chris Ofili( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 375 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 ( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 134 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 : making public buildings : specificity, customization, imbrication by David Adjaye( Book )
13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 52 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
Adjaye, Africa, architecture : a photographic survey of metropolitan architecture by David Adjaye( Book )
24 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 49 libraries worldwide

David Adjaye : houses : recycling, reconfiguring, rebuilding by David Adjaye( Book )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and German and held by 45 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."--Jacket
Tim Noble & Sue Webster : turning the seventh corner by Tim Noble( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
This book comprehensively documents the conception and realisation of the artists' recent exhibition at Blain/Southern, Berlin. A monumental, site-specific installation, Turning the Seventh Corner was created by Noble and Webster in collaboration with the architect David Adjaye. The installation responded to the monumental tombs of the Egyptian Pharaohs and was specifically inspired by 'The Great Pyramid of Giza', one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. This publication includes intriguing images, drawings and diagrams which chart the development of the work, and the artists' own photographs reveal the intricate process of how the installation's internal sculpture, 'The Gamekeeper's Gibbet' was created. Exhibition: Blain/Southern, Berlin, Germany
David Adjaye, authoring : re-placing art and architecture by David Adjaye( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 32 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

Born in Tanzania, David Adjaye (b. 1966) is rapidly emerging as a major international figure in architecture and design'and this stunning catalogue serves only to cement his role as one of the most important architects of our time. His expanding portfolio of important civic architecture, public buildings, and urban planning commissions spans Europe, the United States, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. He transforms complex ideas and concepts into approachable and innovative structures that respond to the geographical, ecological, technological, engineering, economic, and cultural systems that shape the practice of global architecture. The publication of this compendium of work and essays coincides with the scheduled opening of Adjayes National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Adjayes completed work in the United States includes the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, a pair of public libraries in D.C., and several private residences. He is also known for his collaborations with artists, most recently with the British painter Chris Ofili (b. 1968). Following an introduction by Zoë Ryan, Adjaye writes on his current and future work, with subsequent essays by an extraordinary cadre of architectural scholars on Adjayes master plans and urban planning, transnational architecture, monuments and memorials, and, finally, the forthcoming museum in D.C. Portfolios of Adjayes work thread throughout this comprehensive volume

Constructed Narratives brings together essays and several recently completed buildings by David Adjaye, in the United States and elsewhere.

Other essays discuss his engagement with geography, the urban environment, his approach to materiality, and architectural types. The presented projects include two public libraries and the National Museum of African American History and Culture, all in Washington D.C., a residential mixed-use building in New York, and a hybrid art-retail building in Beirut.
