Mass Housing in Nigeria, Customize the Brief: Provide a Desired House

Adedayo Olatunde Folaranmi


The nature of the housing designs in mass housing schemes in Nigeria is a function of how architects were trained to handle mass housing designs. It is common practice to find that the houses in majority of the mass housing schemes in Nigeria are never owner specific. It is often assumed by architects working on mass housing schemes that the process of making the houses specific is cumbersome. The nature of the construction method of these mass housing schemes allows for the design briefs of the individual house to be different. This paper examines how design brief in mass housing in Nigeria can be customized. This is done through the development of a customization brief model with aid of a network of computers. It is expected that if the model is applied into mass housing in Nigeria, desired house by house owners in mass housing schemes would be met.
