Most widely held works by David Adjaye
Chris Ofili by Chris Ofili( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 380 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 93 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."
Tim Noble & Sue Webster : turning the seventh corner by Tim Noble( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 41 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

Published on the occasion of his exhibition at London's Whitechapel Gallery, this book brings together ... authors to reflect on Adjaye's practice, significance and influences.

Two interviews with David Adjaye, one led by Peter Allison and the other by Kodwo Eshun, guide us throught his approach to making public buildings within a global context. They are accompanied by drawings, documents and photographs relating to ten of Adjaye's most important projects, all published here for the first time -- Dust jacket

David Adjaye, authoring : re-placing art and architecture by David Adjaye( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 23 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

New skin : selections from the Tony and Elham Salamé collection-Aïshti Foundation ( Book )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
New Skin presents a selection of artworks from the Tony and Elham Salamé collection. Encompassing more than 2000 pieces by various artists, the collection has grown at vertiginous speed throughout the last decade, establishing the Aïshti Foundation as one of the most energetic institutions in the Middle East and beyond. Borrowing its title from a sculpture by British artist Alice Channer, the exhibition brings together works that expand and transform the language of abstraction, imagining new relationships between surfaces, textures and forms. Conceived in dialogue with David Adjaye's architectural design for the Aïshti Foundation's new building, the exhibition focuses on recent experiments in painting and sculpture while establishing a speculative lineage that stretches from the sensuous surfaces of works by Agostino Bonalumi, Enrico Castellani, Lucio Fontana, and Piero Manzoni to the digitally rendered compositions of many contemporary artists
