In this episode of your city or mine?, Julio meets Kunlé Adeyemi, the brilliant Nigerian architect, academic and entrepreneur. Based in both Lagos and Amsterdam, Kunlé is the founder of the architecture firm NLÉ which meets the huge challenges of climate change in imagining cities of the future. Kunlé tells Julio why his city is Lagos; how Kigali in Rwanda has clamped down on plastic and could even be considered ‘heaven’; and why we all need to rethink how we live in a time of rising waters and rapid urbanisation. Plus Julio speaks to Virginia Gil, editor of Time Out Miami about the latest trends in the city.
