Sir David Adjaye, a celebrated British-Ghanaian architect, has been accused of sexual misconduct by three former employees. The allegations range from sexual assault to harassment. According to the Financial Times, one of the women has made a criminal complaint against Adjaye.

Adjaye’s lawyer has denied making any sexual advances and disputed specific details of the women’s claims. The lawyer presented evidence of cordial relationships between Adjaye and the women, including messages and photographs. The allegations against Adjaye have sparked a conversation about sexual misconduct in the architecture industry and the need for accountability and transparency. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has released a statement saying they take the allegations seriously and are committed to ensuring a safe and respectful working environment for all.


Sir David Adjaye is known for his work on high-profile projects such as the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., and the National Cathedral of Ghana. He has received numerous awards and honors for his contributions to architecture and design.

The allegations against Adjaye are currently under investigation, and it remains to be seen what the outcome will be. However, it is clear that the conversation around sexual misconduct in the architecture industry is an important one that needs to be had. Architects and designers have a responsibility to create safe and respectful working environments for all, and it is up to the industry as a whole to hold individuals accountable for their actions.
