Acclaimed architect Sir David Adjaye will be in San Antonio in January

August 20, 2018

Sir David Adjaye, the internationally acclaimed architect who is designing Ruby City, will give a talk at Trinity University in January.

Adjaye will talk about Ruby City, the museum currently under construction on Camp Street to house the late Linda Pace’s art collection. Drawings by Pace, an artist and philanthropist who died in 2007, inspired the building’s design as well as its distinctive palette, which is meant to evoke rubies.

The talk at Trinity will be free and open to the public.

Adjaye is slated to return to San Antonio in October 2019 as part of the opening festivities for the building.

Ruby City is the first project in Texas to be designed by Adjaye, whose work can be found all over the globe. His largest project to date is the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall.
