Signed on as master planner for the anticipated Hunters Point Shipyard project phase two, British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye, principal of Adjaye Associates, will add another esteemed plume to his cap—knighthood. The noted architect was named Knight Bachelor at Queen Elizabeth II’s annual New Year’s Honors.
