Introduction

Lagos is one of the fastest growing Megacities around the globe, and the most populous city in Nigeria.  With a population of close to 8 million residents, it is the 7th fastest growing city in the world.

This project is an exploration of how to begin to solve some of the problems that plague a rapidly growing megacity with underdeveloped urban conditions. The primary focus will be on the issue of density and overcrowding. The project will be comprised of a proposed conceptual master plan, with primary focus on a sustainable high-rise development.

The high-rise will be about the use of High density urban development known as the “Vertical city” to begin to approach the urban problems that are found in the city of Lagos Nigeria. By creating vertical infrastructure, the new development will allow the city to rethink a more sustainable urban plan for land use and development. The new development would also include a renewable Energy research center to offset the city’s
inefficient power supply.
