Afritecture: The Technology School of Guelmim Morocco


Designed by the architect trio, Saad El Kabbaj, Driss Kettani & Mohamed Amine Siana; the minimal and modern Technology School of Guelmin in Morocco consists of spaces such as workshops, a library, laboratories, administrative buildings and much more. This school is a veritable display of modern African infrastructure while maintaining traditional Moroccan flair to create a view that is nothing short of spectacular!

Although modern in style, the school aesthetically pulls on traditional North African design elements that have been around for centuries. The designers skillfully played with orientations, projections, openness and lighting to create an environment both suitable for learning as well as meditating. They say a rested mind can improve productivity. Let’s hope its pensive spaces will help enlighten the innovators of tomorrow.
