Plastic pollution has been a growing issue for decades and there have been various solutions presented by different global actors and bodies such as governments and international organisations. As architects and urban designers, it is important for us to be involved in this process and Lagos is a city that has seen bleak and limited amounts of solutions that respond to the context of the city. This is what led us to this year’s competition theme.
For this year’s edition of the Lagos Architecture Competition, you are asked to design creative architectural solutions to the problem of plastic pollution. We are not going to limit the scale or type of architecture your design should represent. The only requirements are that your designs must aim to solve the issue of plastic pollution and must use Lagos, Nigeria as a context. Whether your design is a single house that makes efficient use of recycled or upcycled plastic, a masterplan for a community that engages in plastic recycling and uses it as their way of generating income or even an industrial building or masterplan that presents a creative way to combat plastic pollution.
Unlike the previous competition, Lagos: City of Water, your design does not need to have a relationship with water. The context can be any part of Lagos whether on land or water. It is also important for your design to engage with the local Lagos community and urban context and should not be a lone piece of architecture. The top designs will not only address plastic pollution and the point mentioned above, but also take microplastic into account as well as the harmful fumes plastic can emit when exposed to heat.
