One thought on “A Debate On Sustainability In Architecture- Employing The Right Principles And Materials For Nigeria’s Environment

  1. This looks very interesting; It is time Nigerian Architects join the debate about producing sustainable buildings. I am curious to know why there are no Architects on the panel. It will be interesting to know what progress if any has been made in this important aspect of construction.
    As a PhD researcher in sustainable design, I am interested in the theme of the project and hope to attend one in the future.
