To mark the opening of his exhibition Making Memory, hear Sir David Adjaye discuss his work and interest in monuments and memorials, with architect and curator Nikolaus Hirsch.

What to expect
Can architecture be used to record our memories and shape perceptions of past events? Can it help us better understand today?

In this talk, celebrated architect Sir David Adjaye examines the idea of the monument and explores how architecture and form can be used as storytelling devices, in conversation with architect and curator Nikolaus Hirsch.

The pair will discuss the meaning of ‘monuments’ today through focusing on several buildings that feature in David Adjaye: Making Memories exhibition at the Design Museum.
