My article entitled “Narratives of Hybridization” commissioned for AMAG magazine on the David Adjaye’s work reflects on his architectural practice and on how he composes new narratives on the notion of materiality and how he works on the precision of the research process in the hybridization of the various systems he creates, and this go beyond mutation, distortion, disjunction and collision.
