DescriptionThe 2017 Open House Lagos weekend which held from 29 - 30 April had 7 tours, 35 buildings and over 1000 visitors attending. From the hustle mentality to the ability to keep going despite adversity Lagos can be described as resilient. With over 20 million inhabitants, Lagos is the nation’s biggest urban agglomeration. Its growth rate has overburdened the existing urban management systems and the dwindling economy has slowed down developments. In the face of turbulence, Lagos has been able to survive. There is still more to be done but it is apt that the theme for Open House 2017 was Resilience. The theme was reflected within the fringe activities and through the 7 tours; History of Resilience, The Renaissance, Resilience of the Arts, Green Response, Visual Resilience, Sacred Sites Insta Tour.
