An award winning film exploration into the maelstrom of redevelopment in Lagos, Nigeria, following Rem Koolhaas (winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize) and students as they research the urban environment produced by explosive population growth, and the failure of the design profession to adapt. Wandering through the city and talking with people, he interprets this 'culture of congestion' positively, helping to develop a new concept of the big city.
Dir. Bregtje Van Der Haak, 2002, 55m
Presented in association with the Architecture Centre, complementing its Living Architectures exhibition.
