Perhaps the most prominent contemporary architect of African descent--he was born in Tanzania, where his father was a Ghanaian diplomat--Adjaye (1966- ) studied at the Royal College of Art in London. He founded Adjaye Architects in 1994 and has since gone on to design a number of influential houses in the UK, the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, and is set to design several branch libraries in Washington DC.
