Idea Code 18535


A native of Burkina Faso, Francis Kéré has based his architecture practice in Berlin but his work remains deeply rooted in his home country. He uses universal principles and elements that make it suitable for completely different contexts, like that of his adoptive city. Kéré’s body of work is exemplary in its use of limited resources and sustainable techniques, and he has become the leader of a new generation determined to make the world better by working for those who have less. This monograph takes stock of his complete oeuvre, from the school built in his native village to the Serpentine Gallery pavilion, in an attempt to articulate it through stereotomic, tectonic, and textile principles.
