Makoko Floating School is a prototype floating structure located on the lagoon heart of Nigeria’s largest city, Lagos. The floating structure adapts to the tidal changes and varying water levels, making it invulnerable to flooding and storm surges.
Description of the Process
Result of project
NLÉ has developed a prototype floating structure that will serve primarily as a school, whilst being scalable and adaptable for other uses, such as a community hub, health clinic, market, entertainment center or housing. The building processes of the school made the villagers aware of the construction techniques needed to rebuild such structure. Makoko now provides children with knowledge and playground space.
