Publié dans Design  |  octobre 10, 2020
Architectural works and designs are likely perceived as cultural symbols and are often used as a marker of a civilization. Looking at the housing situation in West Africa, architect Francis Kéré thinks that Africans should stop imitating the Western way of building and rather adapt it to their own needs. He talks about building with local materials, working with his community, and using primitive tools to make complex structures. He believes that Africans should use their creativity to develop architecture that cope better with the local environment.
