The cultural center, designed as a meeting point for the world and Marrakech, shows an example of a settlement specific to its location by playing with the slopes of the land. The center offers users the opportunity to experience the oasis in different ways.
The key concept of the project is an interpretation of the feeling someone has when he or she discovers an Oasis in the desert – discovering a new and totally unexpected environment,- reassuring by the contrast that surround the place and a place where life and activities are growing.
Zellige has aesthetic by emphasizing its uniqueness but forms harmony when in the whole. The irregularity of surface, tone, flatness, shine and depth of colour make each zellige unique. This project attempts to describe Moroccan rich culture in space by looking deep into zellige crafting and the spirit behind.
