“The transformational design walks a delicate line, as Tehrani admits, between framing the pieces—metallurgy, textiles, sarcophagi, statuary—in their correct capacity and giving the context its material specificity, without trying to upstage the work. […] But the project is part of a bigger discussion that rescripts the narrative of ancient cultures. By attempting to evoke these various realities through character, affect, color, materiality, and immersive space, NADAAA’s intervention enters into the complex discussion of what role a museum plays in today’s world.” – Patrick McGraw

Posted under: _Adams Branch Library, Press

The character of this project derives much more directly from its social and cultural context than most of our other projects. The nod to the vernacular serves as a foil for anamorphic moments where the traditional is cast in a new light.

Architizer’s editors ask Nader about the biggest challenges of the Adams Library project, lessons learned, and his favorite project details. Read on HERE.

Both the Adams Street Branch Library and MIT Site 4 are nominated for the 2022 Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize (MCHAP).

“The works MCHAP celebrates inspire, educate, and challenge their users, the international design community, and the wider public. With sensitivity and intelligence, these projects achieve a formal, material, social, and environmental synergy. They realize opportunities for architecture— understood through both what architecture is, as a physical structure, and what it does, in the experiences and connections it creates.”
