From the Earth, of the Earth: Earthern architecture projects, several locations, Mali

In Mali, the Trust is able to improve local capacity to manage a precious architectural heritage, to train people in the skills of building with earth and to re-energise the traditions of handing down knowledge of restoration methods, appropri-ate technologies and materials to future generations. Conservation efforts have been completed at the Great Mosque of Mopti, Djingereyber Mosque in Timbuktu and the Great Mosque of Djenné. A Centre for Earthen Architecture in Mopti, designed by Francis Kere, showcases Mali’s building traditions, techniques and heritage.
