There are those who talk about the future, and the shape of things to come-and then there are those who build it. In the case of internationally renown architect David Adjaye he prefers the later. Nearing completion on the final edition to the Washington Mall, Adjaye is building the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. Most recently he was shortlisted by the Barack Obama Foundation to build the official Presidential Library in Chicago. A project that will surely fit nicely in a portfolio that includes the urban regeneration of 160 acres of the Naguru-Nakawa areas of Kampala, Uganda with our featured Speakerbox scion OZWALD BOATENG, in addition the building of Msheireb's Downtown in Doha.

If that is not enough then let's allow two in-depths on Adjaye. The first is with THELMA GOLDEN, Director and Chief Curator for the Studio Museum In Harlem done for The New Yorker. The later is a TIME Q&A with BELINDA LUSCOMBE. No doubt that after viewing both videos you will understand why he matters.
