An in-depth presentation of an important contribution to New York residential architecture. Considered one of the most important architects of his generation, David Adjaye is lauded for high-profile buildings such as the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, and the recent competition-winning design for the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. Designed and built over five years for the contemporary art collector Adam Lindemann, 77E77 was conceived as a sophisticated response to the specific site and the culturally rich neighborhood. The result is a spatially complex series of interlocking spaces, providing suitable rooms for both the challenging art collection it houses and a young and growing family. With 77E77 Adjaye has made a fresh and successful contribution to the history of the modern home in New York: a house for our new generation.
David Adjaye is the principal of Adjaye Associates, London, New York, and Berlin. Adam Lindemann is the author of Collecting Contemporary. Robert Polidori is an award-winning photographer, and his work is the subject of twelve books.
