As a child growing up in Burkina
Faso, architect Francis Kéré travelled over 40km to go to school.
To make education more accessible for others, he designed a
primary school in his home village of Gando that uses clay bricks
and innovative ventilation techniques to combat the effects of
extreme heat. This year Francis Kéré’s award-winning Berlin-based
practice Kéré Architecture has designed the Serpentine Pavilion
that will host the annual Park Night series supported by COS.
