Diébédo Francis Kéré: "Architecture is About People"

Diébédo Francis Kéré: "Architecture is About People"

On the Louisiana Channel's latest installment, Burkinabé architect Diébédo Francis Kéré discusses his "Canopy" installation, currently on view at the Louisiana Museum in Denmark, and shares thoughts on the impact of architecture. Designed with a sense of freedom that encourages users to interact with the installation as they wish, Kere's Canopy serves as a flexible gathering space within the museum that is reminiscent of "AFRICA." 

“They’re free to use the space like they behave, like they feel," says Kere. "Architecture is about people."
