City Park of Lagos

The proposal presents a solution developed through analysis of the intervention area which diagnosed tensions and contradictions inherent in an empty urban space. The working space is a void, a place without function lacking physical content.

The intervention proposes the creation of a space that allows basic interaction. Where human emotion and experience is encouraged by social communication. An area of great humility which gives prominence to a structure that deserves recognition. The historic wall provides a subtle space which invites use and establishes a rapport between its users. Much more than imposing a form, it allows a relationship between people and place. As a public space project its urban relevance is attained not only by its imposing structure but through the daily actions of a variety of user groups.
