Why Goethe Institut’s Green Building Event in Lagos is A Vibe

Goethe Institut, Lagos is set to host a three-in-one event on the theme “Learning From Green African Building.” Wondering why this is such a vibe? Well, for starters, this project was launched by Goethe Institut Senegal in 2021 to create visibility on sustainable construction initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa and connect committed players. The project is a web platform made up of three aspects.

The first one is an interactive and participatory map of the continent’s diverse approaches, from vernacular heritage to contemporary buildings including the stakeholders involved, research projects, resources etc.

Next, the second is a series of videos produced by the Goethe Institut, showcasing particularly relevant projects and players across Africa. The last aspect is a corpus of essays written by committed personalities to help define sustainable architecture in sub-Saharan Africa today.

The launch which will take place on February 2nd, 2024 at the Goethe Institut, Victoria Island features a lecture, an open discussion and an exhibition.
