Makoko Floating School

Lagos, Nigeria

Makoko is a community on water. For nearly 100 years, it has thrived on the fishing and sawing industries-providing over a third of Lagos’ fish supply and most of its timber.

It is a highly dense and urbanized area, yet it has no roads, no land, and no modern infrastructure. Makoko is an innovative and contemporary model for coastal African cities, brought to actualization by the NLE team.
