European training and traditional African methods combine for all of the architecture designed by Francis Kere. Instead of using all Western methods, he tries to add traditional methods that are solutions to the high temperatures, seasonal weather, and the lack of many resources in Africa. He likes to use local materials since they have been proven to work against the elements for many years. His earlier success was found in the area of Gando and the Gando Primary School then the library, secondary school, teacher’s housing, and the community center. He has been expanding his projects over the years which include a medical center, the Red Cross Museum, and a center that promotes earth architecture.
