Water and Earth. The basin Sahrij Labgar in Marrakech
The project for the Sahrij Labgar basin in Marrakech is a continuation of the studies carried out during the ArcheoURB international research programme. The programme was financed by FAS funds allocated by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and used by the latter to stimulate co-operation between the Italian regions, as well as those of the Mediterranean area, increasing and improving regional skills in order to be prepared to face the challenges of the European programmes. In this framework, the International Foundation for Advanced Studies in Architecture - the project’s scientific coordinator for the Campania Region - the University Cadi Ayyad of Marrakech and the University of Cairo, worked together in order to propose pilot-projects: among these the Sahrij Labgar basin area in Marrakech. The Sahrij Labgar basin was formerly part of the wider water system supply of Marrakech. The aim of the project is the recovery of the basin’s original function and the creation of a garden connected to the already existing gardens in order to slow down the rapid urbanization of recent years. A new building is also included in the garden system: a museum of “water resource”. This building experiments with the idea of using either the stereotaxic and the tectonic construction not as alternative systems of architectural expressiveness.
