The form that monuments take and the way that they are used is constantly changing. Monuments are a record of who we are in the world and what we have done. They are deeply ingrained in our psyche as a way of memorialising our triumphs and failures. Through this exhibition, celebrated architect Sir David Adjaye OBE presents a new architectural narrative for the monument where architecture and form are used as storytelling devices.

Discover seven of Adjaye’s landmark structures to explore the design, role and use of contemporary monuments. With projects including the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C and the UK Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre in London, these monuments and memorials show how Adjaye uses architecture and form to reflect on history, memory and record human lives.

Solar Carve

Architecture | December 25, 2019

Sculpted by the angles of the sun, Solar Carve (40 Tenth Ave) explores how shaping architecture in response to solar access and other site-specific criteria can expand its potential to have a positive impact on its environment. Located at the edge of Manhattan between the High Line park and the Hudson River, the building takes its unique form from the geometric relationships between the allowable envelope and the sun's path. In addition to producing a faceted, gem-like facade, this integrated response allows the building to benefit the important public green space of the High Line-privileging light, fresh air, and river views to the public park-while also becoming a new iconic silhouette on the New York skyline.
