Kunlé Adeyemi founded NLÉ Architects in 2010. NLÉ believes that developing cities are the home of global advancement, and that they will provide the sustainable solutions necessary for the environmental, infrastructural and human challenges posed by this megacentury. Its mission is thus to "shape the physical, human, cultural and economic architectures of developing cities".
This is being achieved across a number of projects including the Mabushi Residential Development in Abuja, Nigeria. NLÉ also conceived and developed the high profile Makoko Floating School project in Lagos, Nigeria.
