Makoko Floating System

Makoko Floating System

The Makoko Floating School was an idea inspired by the bustling water community of Makoko in Lagos, Nigeria.  Kunlé Adeyemi completed the pilot project in March 2013. Kunlé and his team of architects and designers at NLÉ have collaborated with various partners around the world. From Venice in Italy, Bruges in Belgium and Chengdu in China. They have improved the first design of the Makoko. Adapted for easy prefabrication, rapid assembly, and a wide range of uses.

Nearly 80% of the world’s major cities exist nearby rivers and coastal areas.  Is this the architectural prototype for the future, as the sea levels rise?
