David Adjaye: The Webster

N/A (2021)

David Adjaye: The Webster is the third instalment of amag’s Long Books collection. The Webster book documents the formal contexts and reveals the new paradigms in architecture. The latest flagship store elegantly asserts itself as a sculptural and experiential counterpoint to the Beverly Center’s retail experience. The cantilevered concrete facade references and reimagines the brutalist shell of the original existing building and is injected with a pink dye—an ode to the luminosity of California, where the Pacific light naturally amplifies saturated colors.
