Francis Kéré (b. 1965) is a Burkinabé-German architect, recognized for creating innovative works that are often sustainable and collaborative in nature. In 2022, he became the first African to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Kéré Architecture was founded in 2005. Its practice is informed by a dual focus on design excellence and social commitment. Renowned for its restrained elegance of structure, pioneering use of material and an inclination towards building in regions unchartered by much of contemporary architecture, the studio has been the recipient of numerous awards. Kéré Architecture’s portfolio spans a wide spectrum of projects from civic infrastructure to temporary installations, from concept to execution and across diverse geographies. Educated at the Technical University of Berlin, he has lived in Berlin since 1985.
