Featured this week:
The Art of Architecture

Created by British architect David Adjaye, the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC presented a complicated brief. The building needed to be sympathetic to both the historic structures surrounding it and the often harrowing struggle of African Americans and the horrors of slavery. How could the building’s architecture reflect that story? Watch on BBC Select as this arts documentary charts Adjaye’s creative journey.
