Architecture In Burkina Faso

Architecture in Burkina Faso is a unique blend of local and imported styles. The influence of traditional African architecture is evident in buildings such as the Kanogo Mosque in Ouagadougou and the Naba Koom in Bobo-Dioulasso. The use of mud-brick, thatched roofs, and open courtyards are all common features. Additionally, colonial and post-colonial styles from France and other nearby countries have been integrated into the country’s architecture. These styles are seen on many public buildings and residences.
