In the second of the RIBA + VitrA Talks series, the leading architect of his generation will discuss the materiality and sculptural qualities of projects including the $540 million Smithsonian Institution National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened in Washington DC in 2016.

An architect with an artist’s sensibility and vision, in 2017 Adjaye was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and was recognised as one of the 100 most influential people of the year by Time magazine.

Over the next two years the flagship RIBA + VitrA Talks programme will showcase the best in contemporary established and emerging voices in architecture, both in the UK and internationally with talks taking place in London, Istanbul and UK regional cities.
