event information


The internationally-acclaimed architect Francis Kéré garnered critical praise from the beginning of his architectural practice when awarded the prestigious Aga Khan Award for Architecture (2004) for his first-ever building - a school he designed, raised the funds for and realised in collaboration with the residents of his native Gando, Burkina Faso.

As the Guest Lecturer for the 2020 Futuna Lecture Series Francis will give three public lectures in New Zealand during March 2020. He will speak about his work in pioneering a communal approach to design and as well as his commitment to sustainable materials as well as modes of construction. His process and the subsequent work is inspired by a curiosity for the particularities of any given locality and its social tapestry,
