How can a building shape our perception of events – and how can architecture, rather than words, be used to tell stories? Discover new monuments and memorials by celebrated British – Ghanaian architect, Sir David Adjaye OBE. Get a first peek at ongoing work and explore the influences behind the highly acclaimed Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. and more.

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.
