Architecture as a Social Catalyst

Theater 3 (The Celeste Bartos Theater), mezzanine, The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building

Architect Francis Kéré’s design for a school in Gando, Burkina Faso, and artist Harun Farocki’s documentary film In Comparison (2009), are featured in the exhibition Small Scale, Big Change: New Architectures of Social Engagement (October 3, 2010-January 3, 2011). Both projects address traditions of brick production. In this evening’s program, Kéré and Farocki discuss the social issues surrounding the construction—with local materials and human labor—of Kéré’s school and a Burkina Faso-based clinic that Farocki filmed. Architect Toshiko Mori moderates the discussion. In conjunction with the exhibition Small Scale, Big Change: New Architectures of Social Engagement
