On this week's Careers In Construction, meet Sir David Frank Adjaye OBE. Born in 1966, David Adjaye is a British-Ghanaian architect considered by many to be among the best in the world today.

His work tends to feature historical motifs that culminate in decorative patterns. In 2016, Adjaye, who is the principle of the London-based firm Adjaye Associates, completed the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., in partnership with Phil Freelon. The grand opening included President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
