PROJECT SUMMARY

Destroyed City Told

Earthquake memorial and archaeological museum

An earthquake devastated Agadir in 1960. The fortified town on the hill was entirely destroyed and the site abandoned. The project establishes a place of contemplation in memory of the 15,000 residents who died in the earthquake.

The scheme incorporates a memorial on the site and an archaeological museum retracing the history of the city. The building, integrates the ruins of the fortification wall, establishing a dialog between the old and the new, between the past and the present.
