There have been several iconic buildings that have captured the attention of the world with their remarkable structure. And ever since the appearance of the early skyscrapers, the next creation always exceeds the previous.

But size is not the only feature that makes a building iconic.

 What makes an Iconic Building?

Iconic buildings are modern fascination found in prime destinations of the world. From the physical design to the function they serve, these buildings are legacies with a striking impression that is worth a mention. They come in various models, size, grandeur and architectural style.

Iconic buildings have historical or cultural values attesting to the history of a people or nation. But several other iconic buildings get acknowledgement because of their architectural excellence.

These buildings have offered more than the regular tourist attractions, and they are contributions to our urban environment.

Wesley, Afropolitan and The Rise are new introductions to this list in the built environment of Lagos, Nigeria. And Lagos is one of the major destinations in Africa and Nigeria’s largest city. It is also the largest city in sub-Saharan Africa.

How Iconic Buildings defines our Urban Environment.

As part of the physical environment, iconic buildings shape the city image they occupy. They also affect the living condition of inhabitants and the social and economic performance of the city.

Iconic buildings inherently perform a symbolic function, and may otherwise serve a social function. They have the symbolic role of city branding, and they perform a social function when used as centres for events and exhibitions.

Iconic buildings have contributed to re-imaging urbanism in every major destination of the world. It has improved the global status of a country, encouraging international awareness and recognition.

The development of impressive structures has improved the quality of life in these cities because it comes with several urban attributes such as effective transportation system, recreational opportunities and ease of access to basic things.
