Brief: The Oasis cultural center should be an example of a green cultural and exhibition city – where usage of energy, alternative energy and recycling, and sustainable development are implemented as an example for the rest of the world.
The oasis should take care of environmental issues and reduce waste. The design, construction, and operation should have sustainable development in mind. The oasis could be the first cultural center in the world created on a sustainable basis – and without compromising creativity, practicality, costs, and uniqueness. This will also make it attractive for organizers and visitors to come.
This project reflects and advocates the potential future of Marrakesh while celebrating Moroccan culture. Through the use of materials, technology, and landscaping, the project primarily explores and attempts to address; breaking the depletion of the oasis and its habitat, combating desertification, evolving labor skills, and improving livelihood opportunities.
