NAUTA’S PROPOSAL FOR THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF ARCHAEOLOGY AND NATURAL SCIENCES OF RABAT, MOROCCO

After three years from its launch, the Moroccan government cancelled the competition for the new Archaeology and Natural Sciences Museum of Rabat. NAUTA presents its project, developed in cooperation with El Alami (local architects), Ingeco (structures), BCD progetti (MEP), Aresingegneria (lighting systems).

The plan of the main exhibition space is articulated into two main concentric squares, separated by a thick structural ring constituted by a double concrete wall that reaches the roof. The exhibition rings offer an ideal flexibility to allow multiple layouts for different curatorial strategies. In fact, with their very simple plan, they offer three exhibition types; from the external perimeter, to the central flexible space, crossing the ‘secret’ rooms hosted in the structural layer, the visitor reaches the central grand void, dominated by the biggest attractions. The secret rooms will host special objects that can benefit of artificial light, as well as offering a more intimate and concentrated experience of the artwork. The concentric system offers every visitor the freedom to choose his favorite visit, from chronological, thematic or partial.

NAUTA FIRST PRIZE COMPETITION WINNER IN SHENZHEN – CHINA

We are happy to announce that NAUTA is the winner of the Q city International Urban Design competition for the requalification of the Yantian district in Shenzhen.
NAUTA’s project promotes the redevelopment of the Dameisha Urban Village by adding a ‘diffused hotel’. By analyzing the local statistics about tourism trends and types, we propose to add the social layer of the informal tourist (backpackers, culture lovers, students), willing to mingle with local habits. This type is perfectly applicable to the local rental schemes, in which single owners or cooperatives manage the low budget rental units fort the unregistered floating population.
Tourists will be integrated into this system, while experiencing the real cultural background of Shenzhen. This strategy wills to contribute to the preservation of the Urban Villages from progressive demolition, by strengthening local economy and promoting the spontaneous improvement of public space and its sanitary conditions. Upon proven success of the model with the pilot project, it can be further exported to the 200 urban villages that are disseminated in the metropolitan area of Shenzhen.
