Makoko Intervention: Transforming the Home

The intervention proposal for Makoko, Nigeria was developed from a study of the existing conditions of the area. The project is a redesign proposal of existing homes through a transformation of construction methods and building materials. The problems that occur from the existing construction that the project focuses on are flooding during the two rainy seasons; trash and wreckage build up in the water, unsafe conditions, physical demands of construction, and overall aesthetics.
