The Lagoon Front project is the masterplan for an innovation hub for the university of Lagos. It is designed and being developed to accelerate the creativity and impact of gifted students within the university. In Nigeria, it is often said that most students loose interest in design, art and innovation after graduation due to a lack of further resources. They are often described as wasted talents. The architecture takes charge on this notion by building a highly versatile and equipped facility for the development of young talent in art, design and innovation. The metaphoricity engages waste as a material for building a place that will prevent young minds from wasting or changing for an unpreffered ‘other’. The facility creates an entire communal space for curious creative minds using the circular economy as a looping strategy for the appropriation of waste materials as a space definer. The waste used are those found within the school and also some donated by the state government. Shipping containers, derelict vehicles, scraps of metal, wood stock and many more are built into the orchestration of a creative community connected with the social activities of the university. The first building in the masterplan is currently under construction
