Diébédo Francis Kéré: How to build with clay… and community

A very inspiring talk by Diébédo Francis Kéré an architect native from Burkina Faso:

Diébédo Francis Kéré wanted to go home to Gando in Burkina Faso, to help his neighbours reap the benefit of his architectural education. In this charming talk, Kéré shows off some of the beautiful structures he’s helped to build in his small village in the years since then, including an award-winning primary school made from clay by the entire community.
