Abstract

City character influenced behaviour while people’s behaviour determined the city’s character. As development engine, city’s biosphere and movements of life support system including architectural engagements showed intriguing  dilemma  in  the  evolution  of Yenagoa . Rethink ing, rebranding  and  remodelling  within  context of ethical and cultural relativism seem inevitable to promote Yenagoa’s development along sustainable correlates to  assert  its relevance on  nationa l  and  global  stage.  Yenagoa’s  most  pressing  challenges  run  in opposite direction  with  governmental  critical  think ing.  Article  style  is simple  narrative  involving  literature  review, judgement  sampling ,  and  quasi  qualitative  experimentation.  Findings  have  policy,  planning  and  design implications.
