Olalekan Jeyifous has put together an exhibition that examines various tropes in architecture, hoping to revisit these at a later date and turn them from concept to reality.

According to DesignBoom, "the abstracted urban designs consider vernacular methods of construction across a diverse range of typologies, encouraging the viewer to reflect and reconsider their intended function and purpose." The exhibition makes one stop and think about what exactly goes into the building of various structures, and also encourages people to think of the different ways construction could be approached. Many times individuals become caught up with the dominant way of thinking, and Olalekan Jeyifous hopes to break down these conventional methods by exposing just what goes into architectural designs. Without this innovation, the world would slowly start looking awfully similar.
