‘I am humbled and thrilled to be nominated by my fellow peers for the AJ100 Contribution to the profession award. What an extraordinary honour, ‘ said Sir David speaking on the award.
‘It is really incumbent on the profession to bring in the best people and to diversify, to have many voices. My work has always been about trying to explore a criticality and contemporary condition and trying to express that through architecture. Luckily, 20 years on – doing work around the world, it is amazing to be able to have the lens of thinking about national identity, social issues and the power of architecture to really edify and transform communities.’
