Baumeister B05 / 2018 English Version


SKU: BAU18005E Categories: , ,


We are pleased to present our readers with a very special Baumeister magazine: David Adjaye’s guest-curated May issue. In this issue, Adjaye primarily examines the impact climatic, geographical and regional conditions have on architecture. As the son of a diplomat who grew up in many different places, he takes a personal look at his African roots and explores the question of what the definition of home and identity can look like in a globalised world.
