When RECORD first interviewed Diébédo Francis Kérésix years ago, he spoke of his aspirations for his young—but growing—Berlin-based firm. These days, the Burkina Faso native is virtually everywhere. In the last year alone, Kéré has been the subject of a solo exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, proposed a new parliament building for his home country, and was awarded the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Later this month, the pavilion he designed for London’s Serpentine Gallery will open, marking the first time an African architect has won the prestigious commission. record sat down with Kéré at the 2017 AIA Conference on Architecture in Orlando, where he was the opening speaker, to discuss his recent and upcoming work.
