Team

Since establishing Adjaye Associates in 2000, David Adjaye has crafted a global team that is multicultural, which is stimulated by the broadest possible cultural discourse, and is characterised by a sense of curiosity and a research-based methodology. As Principal Architect, he is integral to each project, supported by a group of senior directors and talented professionals. While the practice competes internationally with the world’s largest firms, the compact nature of Adjaye Associates ensures direct input at the highest level, and a dedicated team that is flexible and responsive to clients’ needs.

The firm is based in the UK, US, Germany and Ghana and is structured to enable a fast flow of communication with a streamlined, yet creatively uninhibited design process. The executive board comprises David Adjaye and the associate directors who head the four international offices. Each associate director has a longstanding relationship with the practice and proven experience of delivering David Adjaye’s design vision. They also provide a crucial interface with clients from inception through to completion of projects, and manage the architectural team effectively.

The executive board comes together regularly to monitor projects, oversee quality and ensure that lessons are learned so that the office benefits from the collective knowledge of all of its global projects. The technical team further comprises senior project directors, project directors, architects and assistants. Further, there is a strong support team of administrative, finance, graphics and communications professionals.
