Adeyemo Shokunbi trained as an architect in the UK. He worked for a number of architectural practices before co-creating an architecture and interior design firm specialising in the design and build of high-end new-builds and refurbishment projects in the commercial and private sectors across the UK. In 2007, Adeyemo and Patrick Koshoni formed a partnership named patrickwaheed Design Consultancy (PWDC) as a vessel to interrogate Ethno-Tropical Contemporary (ETC) architecture. As a Co-Creative Director of PWDC, Adeyemo has been involved in a number of projects throughout Nigeria spanning across different typologies and scales. These include residential, educational, commercial warehouses, office buildings and places of worship. His design emphasises the maximum utilisation of materiality and craftsmanship in order to achieve an aesthetic that will hopefully redefine the architectural narrative of the built environment in Nigeria. It is what Adeyemo has termed as New Alternative Nigerian Aesthetic (NANA). In 2021, Adeyemo was awarded Best Architect by the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers’ Innovation Design Excellence Awards (IFI DDA). In 2022, Archdaily, a leading international architectural online magazine, nominated the Abijo Mosque, a recently completed project by PWDC for the Building of The Year Award. The Abijo Mosque has also been shortlisted for the fourth cycle of Abdullatif Al Fozan Award for Mosque Architecture 2020-2023. Adeyemo is a registered chartered architect with Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON) and a member of the Nigerian Institute of Architects (MNIA). He is a Cell Head of the Cultural Intellectual Association Lagos (CIA Lagos) and a student of the New Culture Design School set up by the Sage Demas Nwoko.
