The first image represents a graveyard for airplanes located in a forest in Nigeria. The concept underpinning this image is to explore all the parts of an aircraft that can be used as a construction method.
Fuselages are the main body of an airplane, and the builders used this component to construct habitable spaces.
The second image highlights how an aircraft’s once considered an obsolete part can be manifested into innovative architecture. The fuselages create a physical village while providing a sense of community and hope. This image also demonstrates the synergy between the built form and the natural environment. This concept aims to ensure that housing can be made with minimal impact on the forest, allowing a community to thrive in this context.”
The third image highlights the links between the built form, amenity, and sense of community. Physically, the fuselages are linked through their architecture. Terraces have been designed so that the connection to nature is strengthened. Also, the fuselages are located near the river and neighbors, which improves access to amenities in remote areas. An essential concept for this project is providing a sense of hope for communities living in remote areas. Designing innovative architecture using obsolete fuselages, having a solid connection to the natural environment, and providing amenities, heightens the sense of hope and community. This project portrays how ambitious architecture can help those around us. We must help those around us, and architecture can facilitate change as well as hope. This project converts unwanted aircraft pieces into innovative architecture that pushes boundaries while strengthening the connection to nature and people.
