Sir David Adjaye

Ruby City is pleased to announce Ruby City: A Living Legacy, a special, two-part program with Sir David Adjaye, in honor of the completion of the new contemporary art center, designed by the award-winning architect. The first program, A Conversation with Sir David Adjaye, will be held at Trinity University’s Laurie Auditorium on Tuesday, January 29 at 6:00pm, during which Adjaye will discuss the creative process behind Ruby City, his first architectural project in Texas, as well as his collaboration with the late artist and philanthropist Linda Pace, whose drawings inspired his designs and material palette. In particular, Adjaye honors Pace’s striking force by adorning the building’s exterior with a precast concrete, fabricated in Mexico City and imbued with a rich red hue composed of minerals and glass glistening in the sunlight.

Presented by Ruby City and the Trinity University Art & Art History Department 

This event is FREE and open to the public. Seating is on a first come first serve basis.
