AMAZING! See What Lagos Could Look Like In 2050 (Photos)

Lagos, is the largest c!ty in Africa, and undoubtedly one of the fastest growing mega cities in the world. It is enormously fascinating and high-yielding ground for architects and urban planners.

A Brooklyn-based architect turned artist, Olalekan Jeyifous imagines what
Lagos could look like in the future in his series ‘Shanty Megastructures’.

According to Jeyifous, “i wanted to create someth!ng interesting that provides an alternative
vision of the future on a continent and in a country that is not depicted
as much as it should be in science fiction narratives,”

In his vision, shanty megastructures tower over the city’s luxury real-estate areas. Slums, particularly in Lagos, are frequently viewed as uns!ghtly eyesores to be bulldozed, often to make way for luxury apartments, he added.

Many of his images feature Lagos Makoko canal, the infamous fl0ating slum. Population estimates range from 85,000 to 250,000. See the amazing images below
