“Le bâtiment intègre les ruines de la cité détruite, établissant un dialogue entre l’ancien et le contemporain, entre le passé et le présent.”

In 1960 the city of Agadir suffered a devastating earthquake. The Medina, the fortified city on the hill, was entirely destroyed and the site abandoned. This dramatic event in the city’s history makes Agadir Oufla (Upper Agadir) a strategic site susceptible to questions surrounding the notions of cultural heritage and its preservation. The project is a narration of that history: more that an archaeological museum, it proposes a space for contemplation and memory of the 15 000 residents who were killed.
The proposal incorporates a memorial on the site and an archaeological museum that traces the history of the city, addressing the disappearance of men and of stones. The building integrates, for example, the ruins of the fortified wall, establishing a dialogue between ancient and contemporary, between past and present.
