Jun 2021"Full-on PoMo Revival"

The Guardian architecture critic Oliver Wainwright describes David Kohn Architects' two buildings for the Greenwich Design District as "a full-on PoMo revival... channelling James Stirling’s 1987 Clore Gallery at Tate Britain, his pair of buildings feature bright green square grids contrasting with red bricks, colonnades of fat columns, and a jaunty rooftop sign." Read more at the Guardian website here. Visit the project page of our website here. The buildings are due to complete later this year.

Mar 2021Multiform

David has contributed an essay to a special edition of AD magazine entitled Multiform. Edited by Owen Hopkins and Erin McKellar, the issue "makes the case for the transformative possibilities offered by an approach that is ad hoc, eclectic and pluralist." David's essay, "Perceiving Postmodernism: Lessons from London's Marshlands," takes readers on a journey from central London to its periphery, encountering projects by the practice and landscapes that have informed its design approach.
