Francis Kéré: Radically Simple

Exhibition in Munich

A team from Victoria Holland Architecture attended an inspiring exhibition on Francis Kéré’s work at The Architecture Museum in Munich. The architect Francis Kéré, born in Burkina Faso and based in Berlin since 2005, is a leading figure in socially engaged building design. He won the internationally prestigious Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 2004 for his very first building, a primary school he designed in his home village of Gando, Burkina Faso. Kéré’s design received the award for its remarkable success in combining socially engaged and ecological design. Radically Simple is the most comprehensive exhibition yet on Kéré’s work, covering both his completed designs and his ongoing projects. The exhibition also displays projects in both African countries, China and Germany. Highly recommended!
