The Lagos Architects' Forum (LAF) is an annual event organised by the Lagos state chapter of the Nigerian institute of Architects (NIA). The event is aimed at bringing together professionals of the construction industry to discuss burning issues, create an environment to showcase new and applicable technologies, create networking opportunities for professionals and serve as a policy advocacy instrument.
The 2017 LAF, the ninth in the series, with the theme, “An Architectural Autopoiesis” is targeted at “renewing the processes and systems in which the built environment endeavours are being conducted in the light of the present- day realities.”
This year's edition promises to be very insightful and rewarding. Sessions will highlight contemporary issues such as regeneration of architectural designs and practices in view of the current economic recession, the Matrix of relevance; value and positioning for architecture, urban regeneration and new opportunities, global outlook of recession and the business of building, issues surrounding incessant building collapse, among others.” The forum would equally explore the imperative of regenerating old structures which abound in many parts of Lagos like Yaba, Surulere, Ikoyi, among others with a view to adapting them to new realities.
