Architect Creates Digitally Sculpted Timber Pavilion
Designer of the Year, David Adjaye created a special hybrid furniture-architecture pavilion at Design Miami/ 2011.
Each year Design Miami/ recognizes design achievements with a designer of the year award. This year architect David Adjaye was selected and commissioned to create a pavilion outside the Design Miami/ exhibition tent. He designed ‘Genesis’ which is constructed from a common sized piece of timber. Adjaye computer modeled a structure and then digitally sculpted out an organic shaped interior space. He wanted to create a pavilion that blended the idea of architecture, furniture and sculpture, a nod perhaps to Art Basel’s location directly across the street.
