Locarno Talks La Mobiliare - Diébédo Francis Kéré

Diébédo Francis Kéré

What is home? If you ask Diébédo Francis Kéré, an architect from Burkina Faso, expect anything but a structural description based on walls, roofs, windows and floors. If you ask him that question, expect an answer that will trigger silence, from the audience's side. The African architect's musings, part of the Locarno Talks La Mobiliare initiative, are about history, politics, society and justice. They contain the strength, courage and need to say things as they are and, more importantly, as they should be.
