Remediation of the tanneries of Fez


Remediation of the tanneries of Fez

The third prize was won by the two students Mohamed Mahmoud and Najib Abdellaoui of the Ecole d’Architecture de Casablanca (EAC, Morocco). Their project deals with the renovation of the tanneries of Fez, which heavily pollute the environment.

The traditional Moroccan tanneries are part of the cultural heritage of the country and form the basis for livelihood of many families. Proposing measures such as natural filtration systems, the project aims to improve working conditions and reduce water pollution.
