Over the course of 10 years, internationally acclaimed architect David Adjaye, conducted a photographic survey of buildings in 53 cities across Africa. Concerned that so little is known of African architecture and eager to start a dialogue about it, he produced African Metropolitan Architecture 2000-2011, a five-volume publication featuring photographs, maps, research, and essays. Adjaye embarked on this African journey without guides, simply arriving in each city and asking a taxi driver to show him around.

In connection with David Adjaye’s exhibition we are screening “This Building Will Sing for All of Us” and “Collaborations” by Oliver Hardt in MoAD’s Toni Rembe theatre.
