The centre has a design that reflects both the site’s history and local values through materials, pattern and colour.

Then congress centre will be enveloped in a robust natural stone façade, articulated with perforations that allow light to diffuse inside, while acting as solar shading.

Mandala style geometric patterns will create an effect that reference the vernacular architecture of Marrakech.

Internally, the building will include a series of spaces on different levels, internal patios and gardens that will be a serene and natural environment.

The interplay of the inside and outside will be a central theme for the building, communicated through such integrated gardens, as well as with the sunlight piercing the façade throughout the day.

At ground level, the atrium will be visible through porticos and one central focus door that will reference the striking local doors in Morocco, emphasising a dynamic interior/exterior flow.
