The books are arranged with the pages facing outwards to create a a white shell while the colorful spines of the books face inwards revealing their titles. From dictionaries to volumes on geography and psychology, the 9-foot space contains the wealth of knowledge held within the books. The playful structure thus provides both a protective shelter for its imagined residents and a space filled with information to be passed between generations.

Lagos’ Igloo was on show at Chelsea’s Magnan Metz Gallery in New York as part of the larger exhibition back in October 2011.
