The design of that mud mosque can be attributed to Mali's French imperialists and bares little resemblance to the original 13th century structure. Ismaila Traoré designed that structure in accordance with French guidelines for the neo Sudanese style which was vogue at the time.

Djenné is a city full of skilled masons, the style is not French lmao. And the building technique they used is still the traditional one, but I agree it's sure it's not identical to the first version.
