    In Lagos, every high frequency intersection is an opportunity for trade, so much so that the conduits of flow are filled to a point of stasis; a staccato flow. The geometry of the urban plane is one of hyper congestion and informal organization, massive urban intensity, spontaneity and resourcefulness. How can the activity of trade and the environment of intensity it thrives on be retained whilst incrementally returning the flow back to the city?


    This collage illustrates a segment of the proposed mega interchange located on reclaimed land to the north of Lagod Island. It will facilitate the flow of imported goods into zones of storage and distribution, concentrating the intersection of public transportation trajectories (bus rapid transit system, light rail, river bus and taxis) while absorbing the temporal formation of a valuable, dynamic urban spaces of interaction and exchange ( accommodating high density market spaces and supply of necessary resources:- power, water, refrigeration)
