[a]FA Lagos Legacy – Exhibition

The [a]FA Lagos Legacy lab is a joint project by [applied] Foreign Affairs, Institute of Architecture University of Applied Arts Vienna with Legacy 1995. We have been investigating the Nigerian Railway Compound in Ebute-Metta, Lagos, a large open space within the city with several unused or barely use spaces, such as its running shed. Based on the notions of HERITAGE, TERRAIN VAGUE, and SCALE we map the fragility, beauty and potentials of the given site. An interdisciplinary team of students of architecture and art, architects and artists collaborated on different projects on site.
