Agenda Nov 7 – Amenawon Solar School

In this week’s session, Anze Zadel, PhD Milano student and architect, will  share his experience with the Amenawon Solar School in Lagos, Nigeria.

Here an excerpt of what the project is about:

“We seek to address challenges facing Lagos-dwellers through the development of a sustainable compound. Working with tenants in the compound’s building, the Amayo family, and community members in the neighborhood of Ikeja, the project plans to develop a rainwater harvesting system to produce potable water and a green roof that will provide open space and the opportunity to cultivate food; and retrofit the building with solar panels to provide reliable electricity and replace inefficient energy-based generator use. It will eventually seek to address the sewage problem with compound-scale solutions such as compost toilets and neighborhood-scale solutions such as filtering plants and energy production from biowaste.”
