Taken from the African Water Cities research report, NLÉ 2012:
“Our interest is to contribute to responsible and economically viable developments of African coastal cities. With our increasing alliances and supporters, we share a collective vision to develop contemporary African Cities on water. With the unique combination of our background, experience, and global network, our interest is in the establishment of a solutions and advisory platform for cities, while focusing on our core competences of architecture and urban design. We have started… with a small step by building prototype – a Floating School in Makoko. This prototype will be developed into other building types – a home, a shop, a playground – to gradually cultivate a new type of architecture and urbanism on water.”
BKVV is a collaborating partner for the floating school project by NLÉ. The floating school is part of the Africa Water Cities Project initiated by NLÉ – Shaping the Architecture of Developing Cities.
