i had the pleasure of meeting david adjaye a couple years ago. i am in awe of his talent. this amazing tanzanian architect has designed what will be the last of the smithsonian museums on the mall in washington dc. fittingly, it is the national museum of african american history and culture due to be completed and dedicated before president obama leaves office.

Annabelle Selldorf + Deborah Berke – Architects

as much as my architectural heroes of the 80s and 90s were richard meier and shelton-mindel associates, i have switched my allegiance to deborah berke and annabelle selldorf. the twenty-first century architectural world is finally ready to receive these two uber talented ladies. they play with the big boys and look fabulous while doing so.

the only question remaining is which do i choose to design my barbie dream home…
