The 2019 BRIT Awards have announced that British-Ghanaian architect, Sir David Adjaye OBE, will be the mind behind 2019's statue awards for the ceremony.

Sir David Adjaye is responsible for buildings such as Washington DC's Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Moscow School of Management Skolkovo, London's Stephen Lawrence Centre, Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, and many more.

2018's red statue award was made by Sir Anish Kapoor, while the late Dame Zaha Hadid designed the 2017 award.

Speaking about being chosen to create 2019's BRIT Awards, Sir David Adjaye explained, “I am so delighted and honoured to be appointed. The BRITs are an iconic, eponymous celebration of British creativity and a true testimony to the wealth of talent working and supporting, making and producing and creating music both in this country and globally - it is an absolute pleasure to be given the opportunity to participate in honouring fellow creatives in this way.”

The BRIT Awards 2019 will take place at London's O2 Arena on 20 February. The ceremony will be broadcast live on ITV.
