LIVERPOOL SLAVERY MUSEUM TERMINATES CONTRACT WITH DAVID ADJAYE OVER S3XUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS

Following allegations of sexual harassment against architect Sir David Adjaye, Liverpool’s International Slavery Museum has opted to sever its association with the company he helms.

Nevertheless, despite the allegations, the museum has chosen to retain Sir Adjaye’s architectural design for the redevelopment project.

The decision comes in response to accusations of sexual harassment and assault lodged by three former employees against the renowned Ghanaian-British architect.

National Museums Liverpool conveyed its stance through a statement, highlighting the dissociation from Sir Adjaye’s company while affirming its intention to proceed with his architectural vision for the museum’s redevelopment.

“We would like to thank the AA team who have worked hard to bring the International Slavery Museum and Maritime Museum transformation project, to a developed design stage,”reads the statement.

“We remain committed to the project as we continue to build on the momentum already established and intend to start an accelerated tender procurement for new architects in the coming weeks.”

In July, the Financial Times published an explosive story that detailed accusations of sexual assault by three women who used to work for Sir Adjaye.

The women alleged that the architect and his firm have instituted a toxic work culture that has gone unchecked for years and had disrupted their careers.

Sir Adjaye denied the allegations but said he was “deeply sorry”, and admitted to having “entered into relationships which though entirely consensual, blurred the boundaries between my professional and personal lives.”
