In July 2009, I graduated from architecture school and almost instantly started working in a practice in Lagos, Nigeria. As a student, I developed a proposal for an informal settlement in Lagos called Makoko. Since then, I have experienced Makoko at varying degrees of proximity; from a distance as an architecture student, and closer as a community volunteer and designer. My project documents my personal experiences, culminating in the design of a number of interventions within the community which individually address a number of observations. 'Reductive Assumptions vs. Complex Realities’ explores the gap between design and architecture versus the idea and building and asks the question: What role does the classically trained architect play in a community of such complexity like Makoko and other informal settlements?
