Lagos is a different kettle of fish ... the open space requirements have been largely ignored by compromised development control officers ... the issues aren't that simple ... architecture emerges from a complex negotiation of client requirements, client awareness, the culture of architectural production and issues of meaning. <br /><br />contemporary Nigerian society views the architect as a utilitarian tool whose sole purpose is to produce plans sans process ... the space to think is not given as the builder enjoys higher regard.

As far as I know, those can be found in any locality on the planet. That said, I sympathize about your place; floods are no fun.

As an architectural enthusiast, it irks every day that there is very little in the way of well designed and constructed public or private spaces in Nigeria.<br /><br />I have been gung-ho for a few years about moving back to Naija after school.
