Traditional African Art Referenced In David Adjaye Architectural Designs

Location:  London England
by David Adjaye  

The Idea Store in Whitechapel, East London is a mixed-use library, community and youth centre built for the Tower Hamlets Council in London between 2001–05. The building features a striking pattern of green, blue and clear glass panels that make up the exterior walls. The colours chosen reference the awnings of the market stalls the Library overlooks in its location in a bustling multi-cultural area of East London. The pattern of the glass panels also references traditional African textiles in the form of Ghanaian kente cloth. Adjaye invokes the distinctive stitching of the Kente cloth, using the cloth as a metaphor for making a building, and bringing together a diverse community with all its unique aspects.
