Mixing art and earth architecture in Burkina Faso
In the south of Burkina Faso, west Africa, near the border with Ghana lies a circular village called Tiébélé. Home of the Kassena people, one of the oldest ethnic groups that settled in Burkina in the 15th century. Tiébélé is known for its creative Gourounsi architecture and elaborately decorated walls.
These homes recall the adobe earth buildings championed by Nader Khalili, however the artistic aspect is much more explored here. It would be interesting to mix the architectural aspect of Super adobe with the artistic style of Gourounsi.
