Makoko Floating School
MF / 2020
From Undergraduate Systems Course with Jackie Doyle, Stephanie Michell & Maria Gutierrez
The Makoko Floating School was developed by Kunlé Adeyemi as part of NLÉ in 2012 for a site in the Lagos Lagoon in Nigeria. As part of a building systems course, a comprehensive analysis of the project’s site, concept, environmental conditioning and structure were undertaken.
NLÉ designed a school that aimed to solve the drastic climate conditions that ruined neighboring educational facilities, such as floods, with the goal of going global. Making the most of its small spaces, the classrooms and workshops allowed for many students and adults to collaborate and bring forth a new initiative to promote education.
