This Uneven Growth workshop  presented by NLÉ challenges perceptions  about the relationships between formal and informal development in Lagos. The speakers also propose devices that architects and urban designers may implement to reduce  the increasing inequality of current urban development. NLÉ considers a grid work of seven factors in achieving sustainable development: social, political, economic, arts and cultural, energy and environment, urban transformation and materials and innovation. This workshop  consider how emergent forms of tactical urbanism can respond to alterations in the nature of public space, housing, mobility, spatial justice, environmental conditions, and other major issues in near-future urban context.
