„Any assignment should come from an idea, and my idea in this case would be that we need something in-between map
and vista, or between plan and section. My first guess was, staring at the Lekki Peninsula map, what we really need is something
developing in some sort of diagonal sense. This sounds silly. It is silly – but anyhow. In Lagos, there seems to be a certain lack of
verticality – I do not mean towers such as in the business districts but a feeling, an awe of height. Of heaven.
My assignment would be to lay Patrick Geddes´s Valley Section horizontally on the map of the Lekki peninsula – or horizontally
over Lagos as whole, but more important, put it over the Peninsula, of course in the transversal direction – in the peninsula´s
cross-section direction and look what happens. Let happen what then happens.“ Joost Meuwissen, Graz 2011

Exhibition, Presentations and Panel Discussion at Papierfabrik // Graz, Austria

„In Lagos, storm water drainage drain into streams and rivers into the Lagos Lagoon and onto the sea. With the exception of
Agbara estate (Badagry corridor) where a bio/central sewage system is in use, each housing unit has the septic tank for sewage.
Lagos sits on its sewage. And the water table is virtually under your feet. During the rains, the soil (sandy in Lagos) is slow to absorb
because of the ground water. In the last two years, the government of the state has been busy raising the level of the streets and
the concrete drains to facilitate storm water drainage. - Actually, Lagos is below the sea level.“ David Aradeon, Lagos 2012
