Unlike almost any other architect, Diebedo Francis Kéré stands for the association of constructive, social, and cultural aspects of building. This first monograph on his extensive oeuvre provides unique insight into the creative work of this outstanding architect and renders visible the fact that architecture not only revolves around buildings, but always around people as well.
Diebedo Francis made a name for himself with his designs for Christoph Schlingensief's Opera Village Africa. He has received numerous international awards, primarily for his building projects in his native country of Burkina Faso, including the 2004 Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
