Rivington Place, inIVA London

The Rivington Place opened in 2007, designed by David Adjaye for London's Institute of International Visual Arts.

The entrance for the post-modernist building perfectly evident, directly against the sidewalk and with full wall-height glazing. The checkerboard windows recall ancient stone structures. Yet the exterior has Adjaye's typical clean gray quality. The building includes a gallery, theatre, project space, cafe, offices, labs, and a library.

Adjaye received the 2008 RIBA 'Award for London' for this project.
