Research & Exhibitions

The exhibition hosted by the Design Museum explores the role of monuments and memorials in the 21st century through seven projects designed by David Adjaye. Here, he examines the idea of the monument and presents his thinking on how architecture and form are used as storytelling devices. This exhibition shows that contemporary monuments are no longer static objects in a field – plaques, statues or neo-classical sculptures – but are dynamic and complex spaces that serve a wider purpose.
