Watch our livestream of Diébédo Francis Kéré’s lecture at World Architecture Festival 2017

By Sebastian Jordahn

Diébédo Francis Kéré, designer of this year’s Serpentine Pavilion, is the next architect to take to the main stage at World Architecture Festival 2017. Tune in at 12.00pm UK time to watch his talk live.

The livestream is now live and you can watch it above or on Dezeen’s Facebook page.

Originally from Burkina Faso, Kéré trained as an architect at the Technische Universität in Berlin where he has since set up his practice Kéré Architecture, and built a reputation on his socially driven and sustainable approach to architecture.

Kéré has completed several notable projects including a primary school in his home village of Gando and the rebuild of Burkina Faso’s parliament building following the 2014 revolution.

Most recently Kéré was the 17th architect to be commissioned for the annual pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in London’s Kensington Gardens.

Dezeen is media partner for World Architecture Festival 2017, which this year takes place in Berlin in conjunction with the Inside festival of interior design.

We will be broadcasting a number of the keynote seminars over the next few days from both events – including talks by Pierre de Meuron and Will Alsop – as well as conducting interviews with the winners.

World Architecture Festival takes place from 15-17 November at Arena Berlin. Take a look at the full programme.
