Lagos Most Beautiful Building – Kingsway Tower

I recently visited Lagos, Nigeria and came across a building that I believe is the most beautiful in the city. The building, called the Kingsway Tower, is located on Alfred Rewane Street in Ikoyi. As I approached the building from the Falomo Bridge, I was struck by its large curvilinear shading device suspended on its curtain walls, separated by layers of draping plants that reach the full height of the building. Admiring the building made me think about the role of architects and what separates a great architect from an average one. I realized that it’s not just about design, but also the architect’s ability to stay versatile and updated with building components, materials, techniques, and technology, as well as the ability to produce sufficient specifications and details to reduce ambiguity and promote clarity for the building contractor
