Hence, presenting a platform for Lagos citizens and tourists to find out more about issues that are relevant to their local area - from the design of homes to the impact of climate change, and the role of architects and contemporary design in revitalizing a city.

“The maiden edition of this festival was well received across demographics, by the media and people who are less knowledgeable about architectural designs and the built environment in general. For us, this was an indication of a growing interest in this field and an inspiration to ensure a repeat of this festival and ultimately, its sustainability.

The continuation of this festival has been fueled by the passion and drive of the Open House Advisory Board, the Open House team, our generous partners and collaborators and the willingness of the building owners to grant access to their buildings. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the weekend’s festivities for Open House Lagos 2017.”Ojoma Ochai, Director Arts, British Council Nigeria.
