Wearable gadgets, curved smartphones and new game consoles defined technology in 2013. They make up the bulk of the top 10 devices of the year. Some of these devices are essentially much better versions of earlier
gadgets, while others are new innovations that are exploring
possibilities we haven’t seen before.
In 2009, Tanzania-born architect David Adjaye was commissioned to
design the Smithsonian’s Nat'l Museum of African American History and
Culture, which, according to Adjaye, will be a cross between "African American cultural traditions and their common roots in Africa itself." Now, the 47-year old owner of a global design firm has won the
WSJ Magazine’s 2013 Architecture Innovator Award.
