Makoko Prototype Book – 2011

A proposal for a floating building in the water community of Makoko, located in the city of Lagos, Nigeria. The project is an innovative approach to address social and physical needs in view of current challenges of climate change and an urbanising African context. The pilot project – ‘Makoko Floating School’ – will generate a viable, ecological and alternative building system and urban culture for the teeming population of Africa’s costal regions.
