Thesis mid-reviews were this week. For an architectural thesis, the student decides where to design the project, what issues to look at, and what architectural techniques to employ. As the semester goes along each student must present to the school and receive criticism and feedback on the design and argument.
My presentation was yesterday. Here are the images I printed out to help explain my idea.

My proposal is to create a coastal defense for the slums in Lagos, Nigeria by strategically retaining and dumping garbage.Garbage dumping is used already in the slums to create new land, however, by formalizing the dumping system a coastal defense can be formed and leaching toxins could be contained.
