Achitecture for the poor by KERE Architecture


Yesterday I was working on a project in Ghana, Africa and I wanted to see some examples of buildings from Africa. Then, I found this great studio bassed in Berlin, Germany. This is how they describe themselves  : ” Kéré Architecture is a small firm based in Berlin, Germany, with an affiliate in Burkina Faso to survey the construction sites in Africa. Founded in 2005, Kéré Architecture is a team of eight people coming from all over the world. The office philosophy is building with the smallest energy footprint and reaching the upmost benefit for its user. Kéré Architecture is seeking to create economic and ecological building solutions for local situations in a global context.”

Very nice projects, I would love  to work in studio like this!

Keep up the good work !
