On uneven growth in #Lagos, via @futurecapetown

workshop presented by NLÉ challenges perceptions about the relationships between formal and informal development in Lagos. The speakers also propose devices that architects and urban designers may implement to reduce the increasing inequality of current urban development. NLÉ considers a grid work of seven factors in achieving sustainable development: social, political, economic, arts and cultural, energy and environment, urban transformation and materials and innovation. This workshop consider how emergent forms of tactical urbanism can respond to alterations in the nature of public space, housing, mobility, spatial justice, environmental conditions, and other major issues in near-future urban context.
