2023 Election: Things you should know about Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour


Eric Patrick


Gbadebo is the newphew to Supreme Court Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour and son of Mr. Olawale Rhodes-Vivour and Mrs. Nkechi Rhodes-Vivour.

The late Judge Akinwunmi Rhodes-Vivour was Gbadebo’s grandfather, just as he is also the great-grand son to Judge Steven Bankole Rhodes, the second ever indigenous judge appointed in Nigeria.

Aside his indubitably reputable pedigree, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has carved his own distinguished path through life as a well-educated and successful architect.

Born on Lagos Island and raised in Ikeja, a balanced Lagosian, his primary and secondary school education was at Chrisland primary schools up to a point, before he went on to Paris in France to finish up at Ecol Artive Berlin.

 

For his university education, Gbadebo holds a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Nottingham, UK as well as a Masters’ degree in the same field from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, USA.

Then, he undertook his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) duty in 2008-2009 set.

Ever thirsty for more learning, he went for a second Masters’ degree in Research and Public Policy from the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

Thus richly armed with sound education, Gbadebo would go on to prove his professional mettle over the years, working on critical architectural projects and also getting involved in principled policy activism.

He founded Spatial Tectonics and serves on the boards of Alhuda Construction Nigeria and Delta International Commercial City Ltd. 

His unique perspective on architecture is informed by his deep understanding of Lagos’ complex history, diverse culture, and challenging urban environment.

 

He believes that the role of the architect is to create spaces that reflect and respond to the needs of the people who use them, while also promoting sustainable development and responsible urban planning.
