Form, Heft, Material, the mid-career survey of world-renowned architect Sir David Adjaye’s work to date, launched this June at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow.

The exhibition, organized in collaboration with Haus der Kunst in Munich and the Art Institute of Chicago, offers insight into the global architect’s unique approach, highlighting the ways he weaves local geographies and cultural legacies into his celebrated designs. Showcasing over twenty examples of his built works, including the Moscow School of Management (Skolkovo), the exhibition also provides rare access to Adjaye’s research strategies in the early stage of design development.

David Adjaye: Form, Heft, Material is the first exhibition of a major architect at Garage and inaugurates a new chapter in the Institution’s longstanding interest in developing discourse around contemporary architecture and its role in society today. Adjaye’s firm Adjaye Associates has developed an exhibition design specifically for the Museum, bringing his characteristic sense of light and pacing to Garage’s historical modernist building.

“I am thrilled to bring Form, Heft, Material to Moscow, a city that was critical to the development of my approach to working in diverse geographies across the globe,” said Sir David Adjaye. “Garage is an incredible institution whose international perspective and capacity for stimulating interdisciplinary dialogue has made them an ideal partner. I am honored to be part of the Museum’s deepening engagement with architecture.”
