A Floating School for the Flooded Nigerian Coastline- Adele Peters posted in Architecture, Design and Resilience

Makoko, Nigeria, floods so frequently that people live in homes on stilts, and canoes are more common than cars or bikes. Climate change increases the risk of flooding even more. A new school design for the area takes the water into account: it floats. It’s intended to be built from locally-sourced wood kept afloat by used plastic drums.
