DESIGN STORIES / Sir David Adjaye for the Ghana’s First Venice Biennale Pavilion
The Architect David Adjaye will design Ghana’s first Venice biennale Pavillon.
Here is an extract of the article.
“Being able to show the diversity and creativity of Ghana on an international scale is an incredible achievement,” said the British architect in a statement. It also showcases the breadth of the nation’s artistic talent, he continued. Adjaye himself is no stranger to pavilion design, having created nearly 10 in recent years; his first at the Biennale was a 2003 collaboration with artist Chris Ofili for Britain. In 2017, AD revealed a backyard pavilion he designed for Design Miami founder Craig Robins’s home in South Beach, Florida. And most recently, he put out a call for augmented-reality architecture proposals to run alongside this year’s annual Serpentine Pavilion in London, to be built by Japanese architect Junya Ishigami. (Adjaye is a Serpentine trustee and was part of the team that selected West African architect Diébédo Francis Kéré for the 2017 design.)
