The previous weekend I visited London and I had the chance to go to two really interesting exhibitions. The first on was the on the design museum David Adjaye’s display with the title “Making memory”.   The exhibition is about the work of the architect set in London, New York and Accra based architecture paractice. Also, it examines the theme of the monument and touches on issues such as memory, expierence, representation and the architecture role within them.  There are seven key works displayed in the museum and each of them are  encompanied with pictures and maquettes. Included are the Smithsonian National Museum of African History and Culture in Washinghton, the new National Cathedral of Ghana, the UK Holocaust Memorial and Learing Centre, the Sclera Pavilion, Mass Extinction Memorial Observatory, and the Coretta Scott King and Martin Luther King Memorial in Boston. Moreover, there are quotes and texts displayed on the walls exhibitions that I really like.
