LafargeHolcim Foundation Prize Winning Projects in Sustainable Construction

Project Summary

Urban precinct reconstruction and rehabilitation

The underlying goal of the Place Lalla Yeddouna project is to revitalize an historic hub in the urban structure of Fez’s UNESCO World Heritage medina (old town) with new constructions and cautious conservation of valuable historic buildings.

The urban design embraces the previously negated river and renders it a determining urban element offering space along the river for social interaction.
