The Floating School~Makoko, Lagos

Isn't this awesome?
This is a school in the Makoko community, a slum built on stilts in the Lagos Lagoon off the coast of Nigeria. The three-story Makoko Floating School, designed by Nigerian architect Kunlé Adeyemi, has classrooms and a playground, and when classes are out, the first floor serves as a town square where the fishermen mend their nets and floating shopkeepers dock their boats.

Humanity will always thrive and survive, even in an unfavorable places, there'll always be a way, and a home
