Join us for the presentation of the 2021 Royal Gold Medal to Sir David Adjaye OBE, streamed live from Accra, Ghana and London, UK.

Given in recognition of a lifetime’s work, the Royal Gold Medal is approved personally by Her Majesty the Queen and is awarded to a person or group of people who have had a significant influence, either directly or indirectly, on the advancement of architecture.

Sir David Adjaye has achieved international attention for an exceptional body of work over 25 years. Drawing on his cited influences including "contemporary art, music and science to African art forms and the civic life of cities", his completed projects range from private houses, exhibitions and furniture design, through to major cultural buildings and city masterplans. From the start of his career, he has combined practice with teaching in Schools of Architecture in the UK and the USA, including professorships at the universities of Harvard, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Princeton.

The event will begin with the presentation of the Royal Gold Medal to Sir David Adjaye, followed by an In-Conversation with Lucy Tilley, Associate Principal, Adjaye Associates. The event will end with an audience Q&A, allowing viewers to submit their questions to Sir David Adjaye.
