'David Adjaye – Collaborations: A portrait of the architect through the eyes of others' is a feature length documentary on the work of British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye. The film features interviews with Adjaye’s collaborators, a roster of influential figures in the art and cultural world as well as a significant number of his architectural projects, including public buildings, residential houses, artist studios and exhibition spaces globally situated and developed over the past 15 years. The collaborators – artists, curators and writers, most of them interviewed ‘on site’ – give creative insights into Adjaye’s buildings, while offering a highly personal perspective on their particular collaboration. By looking at the work through the eyes of others, the understanding of the architectural approach is enhanced, personalized and broadened to encompass a wider discourse.
