Pantheon structure proposed for Marrakech square

Portuguese designers Fala + Filipe Paixao have drawn up a radical proposal for Marrakech’s famous main square, which envisions a structure inspired by Rome’s ancient Pantheon.

A huge slab would cover much of the vast Jamaa el Fna public square, supported by a grid of concrete columns.

Just like the Pantheon, the slab would contain a small opening at the centre, creating atmospheric lighting conditions.


Marrakech’s central square is a major tourist attraction filled with vendors, street entertainers and food stalls.
