					             HISTORY OF N.I.A. LAGOS STATE CHAPTER
The Nigerian Institute of Architects (NIA) was founded in Lagos on 1st April 1960, barely six
months before Nigeria attained Independence from the United Kingdom. Initially called the
Nigerian Society of Architects with only thirteen members at the time of its formal inauguration
at the premises of the National House of Representatives, the professional organization had
emerged from a modest beginning of an 8-member Study Group of Architects which was formed
in 1958 to carry out the detailed planning for the establishment of the Institute.

The Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Architects (NIA LSC) is the biggest and most
vibrant Chapter in Nigeria. The NIA LSC was founded in Lagos on 1 October 1960 and up until
September 2006, the Institute still retained its National Secretariat in the city.

The fact that Lagos was for many years the capital of Nigeria attracted a lot of commercial
activities and the Federal and State Government had huge investments in infrastructure in the city.
It is no surprise therefore that a very large percentage of Members of the Institute both in
Government Services and the Private Sector operated in Lagos. Officers of the Institute were
predominantly those who practiced from Lagos and in course of time it became expedient to
create State Chapters from which Lagos State Chapter benefited in size and quality.

Although no clear demarcation existed between the Chapter and the National Body, in 1983, Dr.
Wale Odeleye, then second Vice President of the Institute was mandated by Council to assist in
reviving the Chapter which before then had functioned in the shadow of the main body. He was
elected the Chairman at its election held at its regular meeting venue Art’s Place at Alagomeji,
Yaba.

Attendance by Architects who were resident in Lagos was usually high and programmes were
designed to benefit members professionally and socially. The Chapter also took on programmes of
public interest and marked its activities among building materials suppliers and manufacturers who
always wanted to reach Architects. Such public activities by the Chapter included a symposium
titled “The Impact of SFEM on the Construction Industry” in 1986 at the Sheraton Hotel Ikeja. At
the Chapter’s Dinner at the same hotel in October 1988, the Director General of the Raw
Materials and Development Council, Dr. (Mrs.) Aribisala was invited as Guest Speaker. Tours
were conducted for Chapter Members and Students to Agbara Estate and Manufacturers were
Guest Speakers at some of the regular monthly meetings. Professor Wole Soyinka gave a lecture
titled “New Buildings for the Old” as Guest of the Chapter at a luncheon in 1991, an occasion
when Plaques were given to past Officers and The Guardian pioneer property page reporter, Arc.
Paul Okunlola and his Editor.

The Architect in Focus was the Chapter’s Public Enlightenment Programme to honour Senior
Colleagues whose profile provided inspiration for the younger ones. Arc. M. K. Alusi, FNIA was
the first Architect in the series (2nd May 1989), while others were Arc. Deji Oyenuga, FNIA (25th
October 1989), Professor John Godwin (24 May 1990) and late Arc. Layi Balogun (24 October
1996). The Chapter exhibited the works of the Architect at no cost to him and he would be the
Guest of the Day during the Exhibition of his Works to the Public. He was given an opportunity
to speak about his career in the Profession. The Programme was always rounded up with a
Cocktail and presentation of a Plaque to the Architect in Focus. The world-renowned Artist, late
Professor Ben Enwowu was invited as a Guest during Arc. John Godwin’s programme and the
remarks of the former on Arts and Architecture became a controversial issue that nearly
dominated the actual event. Members at the event learnt a lesson from that.
In 1985, the Chapter initiated 2-week Lectures to prepare Members for the Professional Practice
Examinations of the NIA. The programme became very popular and it attracted Colleagues
outside Lagos and the results over the years were most encouraging.

On 1st December 1990, a family picnic held at Maiyegun Beach for Members and their families and
there was a lot to eat and drink because the policy was that each member brought enough for
his/her family and extra for another family.

When he became president of the NIA in 1985, late Dr Olawale Odeleye had assembled a strong
team of younger colleagues who carried on the affairs of the Institute of Lagos State Chapter.
Their activities were generally acknowledged to be forward looking and beneficial to the Members
and the Public. Younger Architects who took over from him did not let him down and they have
not looked back since then as generation after generation have kept the flag of the Institute flying
in Lagos State.

                             OVERVIEW OF LAGOS STATE

Lagos State is the commercial nerve center of Nigeria and the hub of business activities in the
country. 60 percent of investments in the country are accounted for by the State. The State
Government has established a Free Trade Zone in Lekki.

Lagos State was created on May 27, 1987 by virtue of State (creation and transitional provisions)
Decree No. 14 of 1967, which restructured Nigeria’s Federation into 12 States. In 1976, the State
Capital was moved from Lagos Island to Ikeja. On 12th December 1991, the Seat of the Federal
Government was moved from Lagos State to Abuja, thus ceasing to be the Political Capital.

The State is located on the South-Western part of Nigeria on the coastal plain of the Bight of
Benin. It covers an area of 3,577sqm. The dominant vegetation of the State consists of fresh water
and mangrove swamp forests, characterized by the double rainfall pattern. Although Lagos State is
the smallest State in Nigeria, it has the highest population of about 12 million people, which is
over 8% of the national estimate. While the State is essentially a Yoruba-speaking environment, it
is also a socio-cultural melting pot, due to its sound economic base and socio-political importance.
This has induced a high rate of rural-urban migration to the State metropolitan region.

The State is divided into five administrative divisions namely Lagos (Eko), Ikeja, Ikorodu, Epe and
Badagry. The divisions are further sub-divided into over 20 Local Government Areas. Lagos State
is made up of three distinct statutory organs namely the Executive, Legislative and the Judiciary.

The Waterfront and Tourism Development Authority was established to co-ordinate all tourism
activities in the State. The State Government has acquired over 150 hectares of land for
establishing farm settlements. Fish hunting is discouraged and fish farming encouraged. Leasing of
agricultural infrastructure facilities to the private sector has commenced.

The Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development has undertaken re-development of
major markets and the Urban and Regional Planning Board is working on having digital maps for
Lagos State. The Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) is a holistic fiscal reform by the
Lagos State Government aimed at linking policy, plans and budget over a period of time with a
view to making governance people-centered and impact-driven. Lagos State is one of the seven
cities in Africa selected to pilot the sustainable NEPAD Cities Programme.

The State Ministry of Works has introduced the Private Sector Participation Strategy in road
construction. The newly established Office of Mineral Resources Development is statutorily
established to evolve a mineral resources development policy, commission studies to fully
determine the availability of minerals, liaise with relevant Federal Ministries and Agencies, create a
conducive environment to attract private sector participation in exploration and exploitation of
mineral resources in the State.

Lagos State owns several quality tertiary Institutions such as the Lagos State University, Ojo and
the Lagos State Polytechnic. Architecture is offered at the University of Lagos, Akoka, Yaba
College of Technology and Lagos State Polytechnic.

The Lagos State Ministry of Science and Technology was created to automate Government
activities, develop education, automate hospital administration and re-engineer Government
business processes. The first part of the project, which is the backbone project, covers Oracle
Financial Application, Network Infrastructure, Hardware Infrastructure, Oracle Database,
Administration and Training. The second part covers the establishment of resource centers in
ministries, medical and hospital database, vehicular and property security and the creation of the
Lagos State Official web site.

                                2007

JANUARY 2005            - BUSINESS MEETING

FEBRUARY 2005 - AGM / DINNER AND AWARDS
The Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Architects held her Annual General Meeting
on Thursday 24th February 2005 at the MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos. The Annual
Dinner/Awards Night was held on Saturday, 26th February 2005 at the Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja,
Lagos. The Theme for the Year 2005 was “TOMORROW’S ARCHITECTS TODAY”. In a bid
to encourage excellence in the noble Profession of Architecture and the Built Environment, the
following points were the main thrusts for 2005:
i.   Give diversified annual awards that encompass issues of the environment, sustainable
     building design, proper construction practice, recognition of the important role of the Media,
     acknowledge the valuable contributions of manufacturers in the building industry (our
     sponsors) and encourage unity among Architects in Lagos State.
ii. Develop closer working relationship with the Lagos State Government and its various
     Physical Planning Agencies.
iii. Work closely with ARCON (Architects Registration council of Nigeria) to enforce the
     provisions of the ARCON Decree (especially in monitoring approval and construction
     process).
iv. Draft of the Lagos State Building Code and other legislation pertaining to Physical and
     Urban Development.
v. Ownership of Land for NIA Lagos State Chapter Secretariat.
vi. Work with the NIA to give support to the AUA (African Union of Architects) Congress in
     May 2005 at Abuja. It was inaugurated in Nigeria 25 years ago and returned to Nigeria.
     Nigeria has over 4,000 Architects, ranked second in number after Egypt in Africa.
vii. Encourage the implementations of the resolutions made at the Built Environment Summit
     2005 held at the Nigerian Institute for International Affairs (NIIA), Kofo Abayomi Road,
     Victoria Island, Lagos, from 8th - 10th February, 2005, organized by the Nigerian Institute of
     Architects in collaboration with the relevant Ministries in the Lagos State Government and
     the NIIA. The Theme was “Built Environment Disasters (Framework for National Action
     Plan)”.

MARCH 2005              -    SEMINAR         ON      THE      CHALLENGES          FACING       THE
                          ARCHITECTURAL PROFESSION: LAGOS STATE GOVERNMENT
                          DEVELOPMENT CONTROL. Perspective By Arc. J.A. Adegbite on 31st
                          March 2005
i.      1st of April, 2005 marked the commencement of the implementation of the ARCON
        directive that it is mandatory for Architects to affix the ARCON Stamp on all the
        Architectural Drawings when submitting their drawings for Building Plan Approval.
ii.     Due to the efforts of pioneer Architects that led to Decree 10 of 1969 to separate Architects
        from quacks, but since the definition of Architecture was not properly defined, Draughtsmen
        in Lagos State were able to get the Lagos State Government to allow them to submit building
        plans provided they are endorsed or countersigned by a qualified Architect.
iii.    When building plans are submitted with survey plans, they are charted at the Planning
        Authority Office so as to confirm that the land is not located within a scheme that has been
        acquired by Government, e.g. a proposed airport may limit height of a proposed building; a
        proposed road or drainage can also affect proposed building development, etc.
iv.   In the past, Architects in Lagos State have shown a non-challant attitude to the design of
      simple residential buildings, which constituted about 80% of buildings for which approval
      was sought.
v. It is a good idea for ARCON to mandate all Architects to submit their drawings to NIA for
      vetting before they are sent to the Town Planning Authority, which would help to eliminate
      quackery and ensure inflow of funds for NIA, ARCON and that statutory fees are paid to
      Architects.
vi. We need a massive campaign to improve our image in the society
vii. It is unfortunate that Decree 43 of 1990 that amended section 1 of the principal Act was not
      successful in defining who an Architect is. However, now the definition of Architecture has
      been inserted in section 17 sub-section 1 of Decree 10 of 1969, we have cause for great joy.
viii. Soft copies of drawings should not be submitted to the Lagos State Development Control.
      Instead, we (Professionals in the Building Industry) should give building approvals while
      town planners should give planning permits, as it is done all over the world. There are no
      Architects in the Planning Control to vet the drawings.
ix. Planning Control needs only simple line drawings to crosscheck setbacks, type of building
      and height. They do not need working drawings before giving permit/approval for
      development. Working drawings should be given to the Structural Engineers during the
      building approval process.
x. ARCON should write the Planning Control informing them that soft copies fall under
      Intellectual Property in the Copyright Law.
xi. ARCON and COREN must take up the challenge and tell the Planning Control that they
      do not have the required knowledge to crosscheck Architectural Drawings, Structural
      Drawings, Electrical Drawings and Mechanical Drawings.

     calendar months (2006-2008).

     5.   Arc. Uchenna Udeani        - Social Welfare Officer
     6.   Arc. Fidel Anyi            - Public Relations Officer

     7. Arc. Dotun Keyede            - Asst. Secretary I
     8. Arc. Paul Okoye              - Asst. Secretary II

     13. Arc. Laide Gbadamosi        - Ex-Officio

     The Lagos State Chapter, which has maintained its prime position as the most active Chapter
     of the NIA with the highest concentration of Architects nationwide, has remained very
     active and vibrant, responding to and participating actively in National programmes and
     assignments. All general meetings and executive meetings were held as scheduled and were
     well attended. All the activities held in the year under review received good media coverage
     (print and electronic) in order to enlighten the public on the relevance of the Architect in the
     Built Environment as well as create awareness on the activities of the NIA.

2.0 CHAPTER ACTIVITIES
     At the maiden meeting of the current Executive Officers, the focus was to bring back a lot of
     practicing Architects into the fold in order to have a stronger support base. With the
     involvement of more people, a lot of things will fall into place and we will not have to
     “struggle” for our rightful position in the Industry. Chapter events were planned to be made
     as interesting as possible to attract more Architects into the Chapter. The programmes were
     planned to be educative both in the field of Architecture and other fields of endeavour. This
     is gradually reversing the popular refrain amongst architects that ‘what is the NIA doing for
     me as an architect?’ to ‘what can I do to be relevant in the NIA?’

4.0 MEETINGS
     The Chapter has consistently held Executive Meetings on the second Thursday of every month
     during which previous events were appraised and forthcoming events are planned. Sub-
     committees are usually constituted to plan major events like Seminars etc.

     General meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month and are usually in the form of a
     Business Meeting, a Seminar, a Study/Facility Tour, etc. Attendance at meetings has been
     commendable and has shown consistent increase. However, we are striving to attain a much
     higher attendance of committed members relative to the number of Architects that reside and
     practice in Lagos. Currently, text messages are sent to all Architects in our database on the
     Monday prior to the meeting date, while an advert is placed in the Guardian of the same day.
     Minutes of meetings and Notice of meetings are also sent via e-mail to all Architects in our
     database.

5.0 SEMINARS
     The Chapter has continued to ensure that members are constantly kept abreast of trends and
     contemporary issues both in the Industry and in general through seminars and lectures. To this
     end, five seminars were planned for the year in review, four of which have held to date. The
     seminars include:

   1. Lecture on Planning Approval Process in Lagos State
   2. Seminar on Investment Opportunities available in different sectors in Nigeria which included
         a. Investment opportunities in the Associated Construction Development Bank
         b. Investment opportunities in the Nigerian Capital Market
         c. Investment opportunities in the Insurance Sector
   3. Seminar on Professional Practice Issues
   4. Expanded Seminar on Public Sector Procurement (other Construction Industry Professionals
      were invited and were ably represented)

     Experienced Professionals in the relevant fields facilitated all lectures and seminars.

     Another seminar in which the Chapter was indirectly involved in was the “Impact of Building
     Failures on the Built Environment” organized by the Built Environment Committee of the
     NIA in September.

     Special thanks go to our several able facilitators amongst which are Arc. Zubairu Ahmed, FNIA;
     Arc. (Prof.) Niyi Okedele; Arc. Femi Fakolade, FNIA; Mr. Segun Ajanlekoko, PAAQS, PPNIQS,
     FNIQS; Mr. Tony Ndah, FNIQS; to mention a few.


6.0 FACILITY TOURS
     Several indigenous manufacturers have, within the period under review, been enthusiastic in
     inviting the Chapter to their facilities in order to showcase their products and educate
     Architects on their mode of operations as well as to foster mutually beneficial business relations
     with Architects. The various places visited are as follows:

6.01 Facility Inspection of Imperial Aluminium Factory in Oregun, Lagos as well as the Study Tour
     of the New Domestic Wing of the Murtala Mohammed Airport under construction (courtesy
     Imperial Aluminium). This was very educative, as it afforded all cadres of Architects present,
     the opportunity of interacting with the project architects and witnessing the construction of
     what will eventually be one of the best airport facilities in Africa. At the event, the MD/CEO
     launched the “Dr. B.O. Babalakin prize award for the Best Architectural Innovations in
     Aluminium Technology” (available to all Architects in Nigeria, whether in practice or in
     school) to promote the innovative use of the material. Modalities for the award are being
     worked out with the company.

6.02 A facility tour of the Ewekoro Plant of Portland Paints and Products, was undertaken in
     October and availed architects present, the opportunity of viewing their range of sanitary wares
     and also taken through the processes of manufacturing the different kinds of paint available in
     their range. A new product manufactured by the PPPNL used to instantly repair potholes on
     roads was also showcased.

6.03 On December 14 2006, the 1st International Finishing Materials Seminar / Facility Tour of the
     Warehouse/Showroom of Impacto Nigeria Limited, a major importer of porcelain and vitrified
     ceramic tiles took place. Foreign Technical Partners, Impacto Groupo World, SA introduced a
     new ceramic-based product used for cladding facades in addition to educating architects on the
     different types of porcelain and vitrified ceramic tiles and their modes of application as well as
     the relevant and necessary accessories that go with them. It was a highly educative visit for
     Architects.

     In all the visits, Architects have had the opportunity to witness first-hand, the respective
     production processes and the various product ranges of the respective manufacturers. Media
     coverage has also been quite extensive.

7.0 BUILDING FAILURES
     Four major unfortunate incidents of building collapse, which claimed varying number of lives,
     occurred in the State within the period of review.

     •   On March 22, 2006, the high rise building housing the Bank of Industry (BOI) Head office
         on Broad street, Lagos had a partial collapse following a fire incident on the eighth floor two
         days earlier which compromised the structural members on that floor, resulting in a partial
         collapse of the floors above, on one half of the building. Casualty figures were in the lower
         single digit range.

     •   On July 18, 2006, another building collapsed on Ibadan Street in Ebute Metta part of Lagos.
         This particular collapse claimed no fewer than thirty lives as the building (popularly referred
         to as the titanic) which sat on a land area of less than 1200 square meters was said to house
         about 36 flats and an equal number of shops on five floors.

     •   On October 7, 2006, there was yet another total collapse at another end of Ibadan Street.
         This time around, there were no casualties as the occupants already had a premonition of
         impending catastrophe and had moved out hours before it eventually gave way.

     •   On 27th November 2006, a Commercial Development still under construction along the
         Murtala Mohammed International Airport Road, Isolo, also collapsed claiming 2 lives.

     In all instances, the Executive Officers of this Chapter visited the scene and several pictures
     were taken. In the case of the July collapse, a Press Conference was held to state the position of
     the NIA LSC on the issue of incessant building failures, not only in Lagos, but also all over the
     Nation. The Press Conference was very successful and widely publicized nationally and locally
     in both the electronic and print media. In all, 15 print and 6 electronic media houses were in
     attendance and they all carried the news in one form or the other.
     As a result of the BOI collapse, a high powered committee was set up by the Lagos State
     Governor to review the state of existing development control provisions and legislations with a
     view to making appropriate recommendations to Government for stemming the tide of
     collapses. A senior member of the Chapter and a past President of the Institute in the person of
     Arc. M. J. Faworaja was appointed to serve on that committee which has long submitted its
     report to the Government.

     The commercial development mishap in November 2006, unfortunately, had a full complement
     of professionals engaged in the project. A registered Architect was the promoter. In order to get
     the real facts behind the mishap, some Executive Members met with the Architect in charge of
     the development. Contrary to the belief that it was a ‘Design and Build’ Project, we were
     informed that a Contractor, who is a registered Civil Engineer, was involved in the
     development. A registered Structural Engineer was also on the team of Consultants.
     Investigations are still on within the various relevant Institutes, the Government and the Client.

     In a related development, the State Government instituted the Building Monitoring Marshals
     scheme and the Building Materials Testing Laboratory. The NIA representation in the
     Committee of the BMTL is in the person of the current Chairman of this Chapter, Arc. Enyi
     Ben-Eboh. Names of 70 fully registered Architects have been nominated for the BMM, which is
     currently on hold due to the fact that the Lagos State Government is in the process of reviewing
     the existing Building Plan Approval Procedure.

8.0 COURTESY CALLS
     The Executives were billed to pay courtesy call to both the Honourable Commissioner and the
     Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development
     in July, but was postponed due to the unfortunate building collapse, which occurred on the eve
     of the originally accepted date. The visit finally held on the 2nd of November 2006 and the
     Chapter was able to get a commitment from the Commissioner to begin the implementation of
     the use of ARCON security stamps on all architectural drawings going for approval. In addition
     the Chapter is going to be involved in the post approval supervision of all construction works
     through the use of its registered members, in collaboration with the relevant agencies of
     government to ensure collective responsibility for building failures going forward.

9.0 PUBLICITY
    In order to create awareness amongst the general public on the role of the Architect in the Built
    Environment, as well as for Architects to know who they are and rise up to their
    responsibilities in their immediate environment, the Executive Committee decided that all
    programmes and events held by the Chapter would have wide publicity, before, during and
    after such events. This will also attract more Architects, who are either ignorant or non-chalant,
    to become more active members of the NIA at whatever level they are.

10.0 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES
     In order to achieve its set goals and objectives for the tenure of the Executives, Committees
     were set up with Chairpersons to carry out the various roles and responsibilities set for them to
     achieve our unified goals. The Committee Chairpersons submit quarterly reports of their
     achievements.

10.1 PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
     This committee was set up to plan training and retraining of members on the high standards
     required of them in the practice of the profession.
10.2 EDUCATION
     Due to the fact that the highest number of candidates for the exams usually comes from Lagos,
     the Chapter has decided to dedicate time and effort to candidates taking the various exams so
     that a much higher percentage, if not all candidates, will be successful in all the examinations.
     Particular attention will be paid to the Finals I & II exams where the failure rate has been quite
     high in recent times.

10.3 PUBLICATION
     This year 2007, we will commence the On-Line Newsletter as well as resume the printed
     Newsletter we used to have. This will be of improved quality in contents and presentation.

10.4 WELFARE
     At the beginning of the tenure of this Executive Committee, it was decided that the Chapter
     would touch the lives of its members through a string of welfare packages that will improve the
     lot of Architects, not just physically, but also materially. To this effect, the idea of the group
     insurance came up. Modalities for the group insurance scheme are being worked out. The
     contribution is not limited to membership status as all cadres of members who are interested are
     eligible. In addition to this, Birthdays, Anniversaries and Deaths are to be noted and marked for
     members of the Chapter. This will foster a better bonding and develop commitment amongst
     members.

10.5 PUBLIC RELATIONS
     In order to improve on our database of Architects in Lagos, a form has been designed by the PR
     Committee for all Architects to fill. All members can download the forms online, fill in and
     forward to the PRO. Those who fill forms are also requested to give information of other
     Architects they know who reside or practice in the Lagos Metropolis but are not active in the
     NIA. This is one of the strategies put in place to reach out to more Architects that we
     ordinarily may not know.

11.0 SPONSORSHIP
     The Chapter has over the period under review, enjoyed the co-operation of several sponsors in
     the hosting of her meetings, seminars and facility tours. Special thanks go to Gilda Nigeria
     Limited, Portland Paints and Products Nigeria Limited, Wichtech Industries Limited, Imperial
     Aluminium Limited, Impacto Trading Nigeria Limited, President Paints, Somotex Nigeria
     Limited, White Shields Nigeria, Grey Modules Limited, amongst others. We owe a great deal of
     our success to them

12.0 THE NATIONAL BUILDING CODE
     The National Building Code, concluded and approved on July 17-21, 2006 by the National
     Council on Housing and Urban Development and ratified by the Federal Executive Council
     was endorsed by the National Council of States for use all over the Nation. The document has
     since been published and launched to the public.

     The Chapter was in the forefront of the evolution of the National Building Code, having set
     out the ground rules at its earlier extensive diagnosis and fine-tuning of the existing documents
     in that regard. It also played a prominent role at the Institute’s presentation during the
     stakeholders’ forum. We are proud to be part of that success story. It is important that every
     Professional Architect knows and understands this document in order to improve our
     professional practice procedures, know how roles and responsibilities as well as the grave
     consequences for negligence and to ensure safety of lives and property in the built environment.
13.0 INTERNATIONAL TOURS
     The Chapter has always encouraged members to be part of the various international gatherings
     that took place during the year. Members of the Chapter attended 2006 AUA events in Ghana
     and Kenya. At the Ghana event, one of our members in the person of Arc. (Mrs.) Tiwalola
     Fadeyibi was given an award for her outstanding contributions to the success of the event.

     Members were also present at the Africonstruct Investment Conference in Yaounde,
     Cameroon, The Ghana Institute Of Architects’ Council Induction in Accra, Ghana and the
     AUA Council Meeting in Khartoum, Sudan.

14.0 DONATION
     As part of the Chapter’s contribution towards equipping the new NIA secretariat in Abuja, an
     HP Laser Jet Colour Printer was donated to the Secretariat.

15.0 OBITUARIES
     We regret to announce the passing of two of our members in December 2006 in the persons of
     Arc. Gabriel Uzomah, as a result of illness and Arc. Farouk Baba-Manu, who was killed in a car
     crash. May their souls rest in peace.

16.0 CONCLUSION
     The period under review, though not without its fair share of challenges, has by and large been
     a fruitful one. However, we have not reached our El Dorado yet as we are determined to
     surpass the modest gains achieved so far.

     In addition to this, we want to reiterate our calls to our senior colleagues to find time to be
     more active in the Chapter. A large number of them reside and practice in Lagos State and their
     presence at Chapter activities will go along way in boosting the morale of the younger
     generation and will surely direct them on the right path to go.

     We look into the future of NIA with great optimism in the hope that we shall continue to your
     unflinching support and full co-operation.

   Long live NIA. Long live NIA LSC.

THE VISION OF ARCHIVILLAGE
TO PROVIDE AN EXQUISITE GREEN COMMUNITY THAT WILL BE A YARDSTICK FOR
MEASURING THE SUCCESS OF ANY HOUSING ESTATE DEVELOPMENT

THE MISSION OF ARCHIVILLAGE
TO TAP THE IMMENSE HUMAN RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO THE NIGERIAN
INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS (NIA) TO PROVIDE QUALITY HOUSING FOR
NIGERIANS AND OTHERS




ARCHIVILLAGE IS AN EXQUISITE GREEN COMMUNITY OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

IN FURTHERANCE OF ITS SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, THE NIGERIAN INSTITUTE OF
ARCHITECTS IS EMBARKING ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF MODEL HOUSING ESTATE
TERMED ‘ARCHIVILLAGE’ IN ALL STATE CAPITALS OF THE FEDERATION AND
ABUJA.

ARCHIVLLAGE SCHEME IS ESSENTIALLY A MODEL HOUSING ESTATE FOR BULK
HOUSING DELIVERY TO SHOWCASE THE GAINS OF THE ARCHIBUILT (AN ANNUAL
SPECIALIZED FORUM ON BUILDING MATERIALS EXHIBITION BY THE NIA) OVER
THE YEARS.

A DEMONSTRATION ESTATE THAT WILL BE A YARDSTICK FOR MEASURING THE
SUCCESS OF ANY HOUSING ESTATE IN NIGERIA.

AN ESTATE, WHICH WOULD BE OF VERY HIGH STANDARD THAT WILL RESPOND
TO THE SPECIFIC ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL NEEDS OF THE HOST
LOCALITY.

THE CONCEPT OF THE BULK HOUSING SCHEME IS TO PUT IN PLACE A 1-BEDROOM
CORE HOUSE WHICH CAN GROW TO BECOME A 2 OR 3-BEDROOM HOUSE AS THE
ECONOMIC FORTUNE OF THE OWNER IMPROVES.
THE NIGERIAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS WILL DEVELOP 20% OF THE ESTATE
WHILE THE REMAINING 80% WILL BE DEVELOPED ON A SITE AND SERVICES
SCHEME BASIS.
SAMPLE OF FORM
                   WHAT IS NIALAGOS@YAHOOGROUPS.COM

1- With the Yahoo Group on the Internet, any Architect in Lagos can search for a specific Architect
   in Lagos when all Architects in Lagos join the group. It becomes a register of current address,
   especially when Architects change their office address.

2- The best way of circulating current information among Architects is on the Internet, especially as
   there will soon be regular newspaper columns, radio and television programmes which would
   require the participation of every Architect in Lagos State.

3- Many Architects need information and guidance concerning their professional exams. Various
   forms of assistance ranging from buying the forms to private lessons with past question papers
   will be addressed.

4- There is a need to encourage Architects to write books and go for further Post Graduate Studies.

5- There are Architects seeking for employment, and so there is a need to link them up with good
   jobs through the Internet.

6- There is a need to effectively circulate information about meeting notices, seminars, exhibitions
   and other programmes to Architects in Lagos State.

7- Information about quality building products and their manufactures need to be updated and
   circulated from time to time.

8- Information about international innovations and technological advancement (such as 3D
   Animations and Simulations) in Architecture worldwide needs to be circulated and updated for
   Architects in Lagos State and in Nigeria.

9- There is a need to bridge the gap between NIA Members and Architects that are not NIA
   Members.

10- Notable Architects and Architectural Masterpieces should be honored in Lagos State.

11- A special one-hour documentary in three parts on “Fire Protection of Buildings in Lagos State” is
    currently being done and Architects in Lagos State are encouraged to contribute to the
    documentary.

12- We need to enlighten the Public about the specific roles of the various Professionals in the Local
    Planning Authority Offices. While most Planning Authorities have Town Planners and Engineers
    in its employment, there is hardly any with an Architect in its Staff. In fact, most L.P.A.s have
    only the following four officers - Local Government Chairman, Executive Town Planner, Civil
    Engineer and Health Officer.
                     ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION IN LAGOS STATE

If you study Architecture in a higher institution of learning in Lagos State, you have a unique
advantage in Nigeria of the opportunity of being exposed to the largest concentration of
Metropolitan Architectural Masterpieces while you are studying Architecture.

DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE, UNIVERSITY OF LAGOS, AKOKA

Current Head of Department: Prof. (Arc.) O.S. Okedele

The Vision: Studying Architecture at the University of Lagos, Akoka, goes beyond the Art and
Science of Building but also into studying the holistic nature of the environment. Hence, the
philosophy behind its nomenclature as Environmental Design. As a result, many varied factors are
blended into a sensitive and cohesive totality as the physical environment, and not just the individual
or isolated building project, is kept in focus. Rapid physical changes in the environment have made
the Planning and Design process more complex, requiring highly trained Professionals with foresight
and innovation.

The Mission: The Department’s objectives include guiding students to understand conceptual
principles and develop a high level of Architectural design competence. The curriculum of the
Department of Architecture examines architectural works as primarily solutions to problems within
resource rather than objects to be fashioned.

Brief History: The Faculty of Environment Design at the University of Lagos became autonomous
in 1973, and the two-tier Architecture degree programme commenced in 1975. Arc. S.I. Kola Bankole
and Professor J.S. Myers (School of Architecture, University of Minnesota) pioneered the full
establishment of the Faculty.

Professors: The Department has had five professors namely Professor David Aradeon, Professor
Olumide Olusanya, Professor John Godwin, Professor Olaniyi S. Okedele and Professor Joseph M.

Professor J.M. Igwe – A Professor of Architecture from the Department, he is presently a Lecturer
in the Department of Architecture, UNILAG, Akoka, Lagos.
Arc. Tunde Kuye      – The first product of the Department to be a Fellow of the Nigerian Institute
of Architects.
Arc. Abdul Adeniji – A Chief Lecturer who is now the Dean of the Faculty of Environmental
Studies, Yaba College of Technology, Yaba, Lagos.

DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE, YABA COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY

Current Head of Department:         Arc. Kunle Ogunnaike

The Vision: The programmes are designed meet the present and future needs of Architectural
Education and Practice. The graduates fit well into the middle and high level manpower need of the
construction industry, both at private and public sectors of the economy.

The Mission: The Department seeks to produce the appropriate manpower, trained multilaterally to
make significant contributions to art and science of architecture through research, design and
technology of construction.
Brief History: The course Architectural Technology was mounted in 1981 under the Department of
Architecture & Estate Management in the School of Environmental Studies of the College. In 1988,
the Department became a full-fledged Department in the College.

Staff & Staff Development: The departmental academic staff rose from four (4) full time staff to the
present 16(sixteen) staff. The department boasts of a Fellow of Nigerian Institute of Architects, six (6)
Full Members of Nigerian Institute of Architects and Architects` Registration Council of Nigeria and
others are Associate /Graduate Members of Nigerian Institute of Architects. The Department enjoys
the services of experts from other Departments in the College from Departments of Mathematics,
General Studies, Computer Technology, Building Technology, Quantity Surveying, Surveying &
Geo- Informatics, Urban & Regional Planning, Estate Management & Centre for Entrepreneurship
Development. Staff of the Department are exposed to workshops and seminars aimed at self
development academically. The College policy encourages staff to undergo job improvement training
in higher educational institutions or other training institutions. Members of staff are released to
proceed on study leave without pay or on day-release courses. Sabbatical leave is available for
qualified staff from Principal Lecturer or equivalent grade. Members of staff are exposed to seminars
on different aspects of their duties so that they can be abreast of knowledge in their chosen field.

Programmes: The department offers three programmes namely:

i.     National Diploma (OND):                             A two year full time programme
ii.    Higher National Diploma (HND):                              A two year full time programme
iii.   Professional Diploma in Architecture (PDA):         This is a five semester full time programme

Students Intake: The Ordinary National Diploma (now National Diploma) took off in 1981 while
the Higher National Diploma took off in 1986. The Department became the first in Nigerian
Polytechnics to mount Professional Diploma in Architecture.

Achievements: Among some of these early students of the Department were Ayodele Oja, Rilwan
Salami, and Femi Lawal who are now lecturers in the Department. The Department places emphasis
on Computer Aided Design (CAD) and thus, currently has an up-to-date computer laboratory. An
Architect within the Department is now handling the Computer Aided Design (CAD) Course. To
further enhance the quality of our students we have always involved practicing Architects in town
with our juries. The high request for our graduates despite the unemployment situation in the
country is a clear testimony to quality of our graduate students as they continue to excel in further
academic pursuits and in the construction industry.
