lagos: architectural identities

opening at white space on fri - feb 11 [7.30pm] is architectural identities, a week-long exhibition that spawned from the notion that the city of lagos - with approx. 15 million inhabitants it's africa's second largest metropolitan area - lacks coherent urban planning: architectural guidelines, clearly marked public spaces, environmental regulations and a plethora of other relevant elements that make up the framework of a livable and sustainable urban environment. on display is the work of a young crop of local architects and designers who aim to address these issues and redefine the urban landscape in nigeria. location: 58 raymond njoku street [southwest ikoyi]. photo: satellite image of lagos, africa's second biggest metropolitan area
