The 2020 LUDI Bridge Series commenced on a high note with its first ever Networking session. The event was aimed at consciously bringing together urban stakeholders to discuss their objectives for 2020. It thus forms part of the fundamental reasons why LUDI engages in urban activism and planning.
To set the ball rolling, Olamide Udoma-Ejorh, our Director, introduced the audience of architects, planners and digital media experts as well as other professionals to the LUDI 2020 projects outline.
The presentation expanded on what LUDI was all about and then transitioned into a stage by stage break down and analysis of the 7 projects lined up for the year.
On African Architecture, Culture, and Urbanism
For Local Government Interventions
Vertical Community Farm Pilot
The Promotion of Walkability and Bikeability on Lagos Island
DEVELOPMENT OF WETLAND AREAS:
As a green public space within densely populated area
Valuation of public spaces in Lagos
THE BRIDGE SERIES:
Architecture, Planning, and Resilience
At the end of the project presentations, Tega Ogodo, Event Manager for Bridge Series then introduced the thematic narrative for the Bridge Series Events coming up later in the year. She explained the 2020 project calendar and invited all to engage and join in the conversation.
By midday, the break-out session commenced and guests formed several clusters discussing their personal projects for 2020 and ways those project objectives align. By the end of the session, the LUDI team sourced for feedback from attendees, both physical and virtual.
The event thus opened the way for greater turn out at Bridge Series events and an overall expansion of the project concept.
