ArchiAfrika newsletter September 2010: This is Lagos!
African Architecture Matters produced the ArchiAfrika newsletter September 2010 which was guest edited by Bukka trust from London.
‘Welcome to Lagos – It’ll defy your expectations’, a three part BBC documentary broadcasted in April this year, fired the debate on how to picture Africa and more particularly Lagos as a place to live. Bukka Trust, founded in 2003 by a group of Nigerian architects operating in London and Nigeria, picked up this discussion from an urban point of view. On 18 June they filled the floor of the Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre of the Centre for Oriental and African Studies of the University of London with a panel to discuss ‘Lagos … Mega City or Crisis City?’.
